Indeed, this was a bounce from someone subscribed to texhax, not from texhax itself. Sorry for the noise!

Okay, so you are not so much worried about "stealth upgrades" (no version number/date bump), you simply want them to submit it to CTAN – correct?

I assume the problem is that AIP creates these updates, while APS is the formal maintainer and owner of revtex... 
I'll try.

Btw., thank you all very much for decades of supporting and improving xyz-TeX, it's come along way from (for me) LaTeX-2.09 to modern TeX Live – and I always enjoyed it and could *always rely on it*!
