 In between major Xorg releases (e.g., Xorg-7.1 -> Xorg-7.2), individual
 packages are updated and released. While updates in the major and minor
 version of the packages (x and y in package-x.y.z) has proven to be
 unstable, patchlevel upgrades (z in package-x.y.z) add security and bug
 fixes that would be beneficial to the book. The process is described more
 in depth here:


 The idea is that a list of patchlevel updates in between major Xorg
 releases can be maintained here so the editors can update individual
 packages as time and testing sees fit.
