... and it shows that the latest stable version (OS 13.1) is still
stuck at 2.2.0. And while there are others who build 3.0.3 packages
(including official OS factory), apparently I'm the only one who
builds 2.2.5 there (which should be an easier upgrade path for 2.x
users who simply want bug fixes)

I think the key word here is "official". Suse is apparently not
interested in providing official up-to-date packages (which, up to a
certain degree, is understandable). So official FR package is a good
thing for those who want to run the latest version. I'd just simply
stop updating 2.2.x unofficial packages should an official build
becomes available.
