Does anyone object to me uploading a wheel built from this patched version to pypi as 1.9.2 for Python 3.5 on OSX? It would help to get the ball rolling for Python 3.5 binary wheels.
Why not releasing this as 1.9.3 ? It does not need to be a full release (with binaries and all), but having multiple sources for a given tag is confusing.
Generally OK with me, but it's quite a bit of extra work for very little gain. We'd have to tag, release a source tarball and OSX wheels, at least.
It's always bad to have two silent versions of a single release. People can never know up front which version they got, since it's not written anywhere. That's why the right policy is to bump the version number in some way (be it by incrementing it or adding a ".patchXXX" at the end).
