I was speaking about the luatex binary in miktex.

I don't see such an urge. I have more the impression that some
uploads are rather slow and that you have to find all the github
places to get newer version which correct a bug. I prefer the other
way: That newer versions get fast to CTAN and that you can get older
versions from github or whatever.
