If your goal is to enjoy tinkering with technology, by all means, do
what you're doing.  Can't fault you for it in the least; I love doing it

If your goal is just to make sure you have the latest and greatest
security updates, you should probably stick with your distro's packages.
The distro package may *say* 2.0.22, but any security fixes released
after 2.0.22 will quickly be backported into your distro's 2.0.22 package.
