I see. So, you effectively have to "bugfix" versions - one with
hand-picked commits for Emacs pretest and one with more commits for

Maybe you can split the versions into Emacs-only and, fuller, proper
bugfix. Say, something like
Tramp 2.6.2.<emacs>.<N> and Tramp 2.6.2.<elpa>.<N>
Then, if emacs=1 and elpa=2, you will always get ELPA version to be
newer compared to Emacs pretest version.

But it is getting complicated... Not sure if it is worth layering the
versions that much.

The Emacs release was the announcement, and the first public disclosure
of the vulnerability.
