This is what I have expected to do. In new releases of pgTAP, I’d probably just add version lines. I might give certain releases names, but probably not. I’m too lazy, and if a given release has more than one new feature, it’d be a bit silly.

I’ve never been very keen on this approach, but then I don’t understand packaging systems very well, so it might rock, and I just don’t know how to use it properly. But I cannot tell.
