Long term in my opinion this looks indeed broken to me, but not the
fact that you have to check if there are patches, but that Debian's
systems don't make this easier. Perhaps it would be good if they would
send a message to the maintainer when there's a new patch, or have a
"general overview" page where, amongst other information, all patches
are displayed.

Well, just my 5 cent, but I understand that this isn't that easy to
change, so in fact at the moment informing the maintainer like you ask
for is probably the best option.
