One of the reasons why you don’t want to bump on CVE is that a lot of distributions choose to cherry-pick just that CVE fix and not rebase on top of an unknown, previously untested version, even if it ships from stable branches. In that case, their pbr version stays the same, and version bump would break them (of course that’s assuming they consider requirements.txt versions in their packaging).
