in Debian we only can update Debian stable, than this needs to get approved by 
the release manages. This is done by filing a diff aganist the old version in 
stable. So providing just the patches is fine for Debian, as the commits 
normally also explain what they fix. This helps us and the release managers to 
understand why we need to update. In the end it boils down to the question, 
either update the version numer or not. 

For Debian unstable, we can either add patches or take the new version the 
amount of work is nearly the same.

Please always list the commits included in hotfixes, as it has more context 
why the hotfix version was created.
