...library Y receives a bug fix and issues a hotfix release merged
back to master upon release.

...library Y receives a feature and merges it into develop,
then...good question,
since Y and X are no longer 'stitched' together they were in SVN trunk.

I remember, there was a discussion about testing library (was it
serialisation or filesystem?)
which had been performed against SVN release branch, not SVN trunk
what makes little sense.
