I have always been of the impression that we should not have any schema changes in minor releases
even if it fixes bugs ? 

But I am happy to commit this, if folks agree that we should do it.

upgrade paths. So, at present if 4.4.1 is out already, people on 4.3.1 (in near future) won’t
be able to upgrade to 4.4.1 etc. Should in such a case try to release 4.3.1 out first and
then 4.4.1?

I soon as I see the smoke tests green on Travis , I will launch a vote for 4.3.1
