Speaking in the apps side (not frameworks)
I think it makes sense to release anyway since we are using the version
numbers of SC for the tarballs (which might not be a good idea), but i would
feel confused if this happens
4.9.0 gets releases of
4.9.1 gets releases of
4.9.2 gets releases of
As a user i'd think, what happened to kalgebra-4.9.1.tar.xz and
On the other hand we might want to use the *real* version of the application
and not of the SC, then it might make sense to skip if no changes happen.
