Subject: Re: [boost] 1.58.1 bugfix release necessary?

What is would be the difference between creating a bug fix release presumably
called 1.58.1 and just expediting release 1.59 ? The work is the same and
this would be less confusion as we wouldn't have any "branching structure"
which would tempt people to treat the "branches" differently.

I believe the best way to address problems of this nature is to

a) test better - more testing is better
b) release more frequently - would diminish the incentive to cut corners to
get something in the release
