My understanding of the discussion was that bugfix releases were tabled
(put on hold) until after the 2.0 release in order to let everyone work
on the 2.0 release. As others have mentioned on other threads a bugfix
release in the 2.0.x series would make a lot of sense to tackle all of
the regressions that people are finding.

We could set a deadline though, maybe a cutoff of one month since
release for bugs to tackle for bugfix and then a set time of several
months to try and fix them? Though with the packaging issue maybe it's
better to tackle the bugs in groups since that needs to get fixed soon.
I'm on the fence if purely packing fixes should get a number bump. It
might not be a bad idea to make it clear to end users that it's newer.

So Idea:
2.0.2 packaging fixes
2.0.3 in a couple months bugfix release
