honestly I don't expect many/any release requests here. After a while we
can likely move this to retirement if no one is using and or maintaining
it. But to answer your question and in the general case for any repo, 'I
guess not' i.e. we would likely pin for each release as you propose below.

thanks very much for your helpful comments. I think pinning is the way to
go here. For this particular repo I don't expect much/any activity to be
honest so the overhead of updating/bumping versions will be minimal/non
existent. Can you point me to the file and I'll propose a review with the
