I'm not sure I'm understand what "resources" you have in mind. What you
propose is essentially:

- Post 1.36.0 release, duly tested and packaged
- Post a set of hotfixes

Another alternative is

- Post 1.36.0 release, duly tested and packaged
- Post 1.36.1

Now, if the 1.36+hotfixes are tested as extensively as the real release,
then you already spend the resources, the only extra effort is packaging.
If, for whatever reason, it is decided that hotfixes are obvious enough
as to don't require any testing, then 1.36.1 package, incorporating the
same hotfixes, can be released without any testing too.

In other words, the only extra effort for point release is packaging.
Are you saying there are not enough manpower for packaging, or I've missed
