Yes we are shooting to get GEOS 3.5.0 out the door before PostGIS 2.2. So
probably before September. A few important PostGIS 2.2 functions rely on
GEOS 3.5 functionality.

It was actually a really good question. My opinion (I maintain the
pkgsrc entry) is that you should only package releases, which sounds like
your standard practice too. But 3.5-to-be is starting to get used as an
almost-dependency by postgis, and I expect pressure from that to
lead to a 3.5 release within the next half year. (I'm not involved;
that's just a guess as a packager/lurker.)
