I think this is a good idea as well. Especially if it's primarily
deprecation warnings.

It is primarily new APIs replacing old ones. In one case, the new API is
more powerful than the previous one, so it can be seen as a new feature.
So if it is released as 3.22.2, it would break: the API freeze, the
feature freeze, and the string freeze.

The GNOME versioning scheme has clear semantics, which makes life easier
for downstreams. By releasing GtkSourceView 3.24, we directly know what
it can entail.
