What I mean is .. other than the base release in a major version (so the
first 4.6 release), the follow on updates all happen as the result of an
XSA from the list.

It is certainly possible that we COULD release a bugfix update at some
point, but if you look at my git repo:


There is a xen-44 and a xen-46 branch .. you can see all the change and
why from there.  If you look, almost all of them are for XSAs.
