You may be right.  I think it depends on what sort of changes they make,
and I have no idea what sort they are.

It might be that some of their changes are features we'd like to
merge in as optional features, or new options, while others are not.
Maybe they would be willing to contribute certain code that we would like
since it could reduce the continuing maintenance work they do.
