I don't need to update for new features unless its a feature I need,
Well we dont do backporting so it is FIXES+FEATURES or nothing. Cherrypicking updates is no sollution, as soname bumps are reality.

Update frequently atleast once a week. Take care of any pacnew files and follow the instructions on install messages.
