Except that we now have the factual knowledge as well as the written
explanation of Richard that there can be situations in which he will
do a release without asking or telling anybody in advance, and these
emergency releases will, in all likelihood due to his personal release
scripts, carry the minor number incremented, and not be something like
21.4b or whatever.

At the time where we discussed this last, there already had been
considerable talk about 21.4, and the question was whether one should
invalidate this without concrete reason.

There has been no previous talk about 21.5, in contrast, and in view
of the facts it would be foolish to make the same mistake again.
