[erlang-questions] minor releases in Erlang?

It's not really what happens though. Debian supposedly goes the "tested 
/ behind times" way but had no problem using R14A before, which is at 
best a beta quality release. Because they like staying behind times it 
caused issues for many years. (This is why OTP doesn't build A releases 
anymore.)

Debian or another could very well decide to use 17.3 as the Erlang for 
their next release and we're screwed again for years. Chances of that 
happening are lower if OTP Team releases a fix promptly.
