One deployment for multiple collections
We are using SCCM to deploy software updates to our servers. All servers are using the same software updates group. There's around 45 different maintenance windows for them. Since there one collection for each maintenance window, we need to create 45 deployments even if the deployment settings are all the same. Becauce of that, if we do any changes in the software updates group, the server will start processing the changes for hours and have everything else on hold.
We can see it by looking at the number of files it generate in the inboxe folder.
It would be great if 1 deployement can be use on multiple collections.

You don't need to deploy your patches to the collections you use to configure the maintenance windows. Create a seperate collection with all the servers and deploy your patches to that collection.
