My advice is "bump micro for user-visible changes" in case the other
version numbers are unchanged, tipically when adding a private options
which is not a public symbol (and thus requires no minor bump), but it
might be useful to check (for example we had reports with an user
claiming that an option was not recognized, checking the version
number helps to spot the problem). Also in some cases an API user
might want to check the version number to see if an option is

Usually bug-fixes don't require a micro bump.

Please send a patch to add yourself to MAINTAINERS, with the options
to be put in CC in case of patches affecting delogo. Maintainance work
on a specific component should not require too much time, and is
always welcome.
