You should not need to bump the minimum version in g-r. The minimum
version there should be the minimal version to have working code.

If you start bumping dependencies or dependencies of dependencies each
time they release because a bug or a security issue is fixed, it's going
to a never ending useless job.

When you're an operator, you know you need to always run the latest
stable version of the things you have in prod' to have all the fixes.
That's common good sense.
