If the distro in question chooses to package it. Some already package
arbitrary snapshots from SVN; after releases start to happen they can
just dub these packages with a good version number.

That's the distributions choice if they will version bump it or not. I
don't know about "update patch", I in Gentoo Linux would just package
the next version, and not include any patches that bring it to the level
of the next version. I think that's what you have meant too, but some
distributions do include patches of code for some reason sometimes
instead of just packaging the new version.

With his Gentoo developers hat on this time,
