I don't think it makes sense to do time-based *bugfix* releases.
GitLab does those as appropriate (i.e. whenever important enough fixes
pile up), and I think it makes more sense to keep the flexibility

I think that's what ronny proposed too, no?

Doing a regendoc PR from Travis sounds like a good idea IMHO. First
maybe it should be more deterministic though, i.e. produce no changes
if there was nothing changing the output.
