I would exactly use the "tiny packages" argument that they are not worth spending
time on it if the popcon is quite low and just chunks of documentation have changed.
Even if it drains not much time this might sum up and might prevent you from fixing
other, more pressing problems.  And no, I do not want to use this as an excuse
to handle low popcon packages somehow sloppy.  I just think that I also steel
users time if he notices: Ahh, new upstream version is out, checks the docs and
realises that nothing really happened.

Metaquestion: Is there a simple way to subscribe to any package where
I'm listed as Uploader.

Kind regards
