Even just a simple announcement that a new tag exists could help it receive testing.  That could make these minor updates more of a real "open source" release, due to public communication that encourages its use publicly.  The extra testing would help us determine when an Erlang release will not fail in testing or production due to bugs.

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?
