No, every update does not require a donation. In fact, very little of
what goes on on the database requires my intervention at all.
Only new maintainers and a few other bits of administrivia require
that. Right now I am very busy and do not have time to deal with
things at the speed required by some people. As I have always said,
"if you require immediate support I recommend the very fine RADB
service run by Merit."
