Kind of yes - we can still update "inside" a major version e.g. stable
releases just fine.
That helps a lot transitioning from one to the next release.

I have an RFC patch for the Debian packaging making use of it this function
that we will likely refresh and pick up on our next merge of a DPDK version.
And I already heard that even other downstreams are using it to simplify
their dependencies.

Applied, thanks

Thanks !
