Hi Sean,

Making a fix release fits well with the release process of the ISO 9001 certification, no problems there. 

In general, it is valuable to be able to make releases quickly to fix e.g. a security vulnerability. The fastest way to do it is to push the needed change (or changes) into the release branch, and create new release directly from there. I do not have any strong opinion if the number of the release should be x.y.z.1 , x.y.z-1 or even x.y.(z+1). Earlier the notation has been -1, but if there is desire to change it going forward, I do not think that is a problem.
