This means we should allow more time for any significant release to be tested
and settle next time around.
I'm in favor to have (in our current X.Y.Z versioning schema) Z be bumped with
bug-fixes only. If we keep it to bug-fixes only, this means we can rapidly
release the fixes to the community.
Feature enhancements would go into 2.5, for which we could build snapshot
releases at regular intervals (from the master branch), for those that want to
live closer to the edge. It'd also increase the opportunity for people to
provide feedback on the "next M.M release", such feedback to be incorporated
into the documentation, and would maybe (ideally) also stabilize the next M.M
release faster, to a point where we would not have to issue a M.M.1 bug-fix
release as soon as we have to now.
