[erlang-questions] minor releases in Erlang?

It has been probably answered before, but what is the reason to not make
official release for minor updates? Ie. when a version is tagged a release
could be made available to the community. Today that could be done using
any CI tool so I guess the reason is other.

I am asking because today an SSL issue was raised in hackney.  I am
generally using the latest tag, or recent version so I didn't noticed that
the code I was using wasn't working for all certificates on previous
version:

I am not sure right now how to solve such issue. Is there a way to test the
minor version available?  On the other hand sometimes as a temporary
workaround I could point someone to use the last release. But in this case
that not simple, since it imply a build and in some infrastructure it would
be impossible. How others do?
