I would like to combine this sweeping change with a couple of other
sweeping changes I have planned for some time, so as to minimize the

My question is how to handle version number bumps in the Makefile.
Each of these will be a separate commit, so they can be backed out
individually if necessary, but does each one need to bump version
numbers, or is a single bump at the end of the series good enough?
Does really each commit need to update the Makefile? It would be
easier on Norbert and you if you could commit and push multiple times
and only finalize it when your done. You would then update the Author

package is ready for release. Norbert will then finalize the package
and release it.
The only actor that would act immediately on a push is the package
smoketest. So this would suggest that each push is backwards
compatible so that the package smoketest won't fail due to a bad
