If for all OTP 17.x.y the runtime is going to consider it 17:

1> erlang:system_info(otp_release).

Why do you say, "Erlang/OTP 17.1 has been released"

I know this has been brought up before, but really odd to claim both OTP
Release is 17 and 17.1, consistency either way would be nice. Not sure
how you could say a new version of Erlang/OTP 17 is released without
adding a minor version number to it... but if the minor version is
considered not part of the 'otp_release' it shouldn't be there.
