Hey Ross,

Of course. You can unscheduled releases whenever you think one's needed,
for exactly that reason: we don't want users to go four months without
bugfixes! Just be reasonable about the frequency of releases; if you
find yourself at 3.x.7 and you're not GTK+ or Evolution then you're
probably releasing too frequently. It's normal for GNOME programs to go
up to 3.x.3, 3.x.4, and sometimes even 3.x.5.

That makes sense, thanks for the answer.
