This reopens a question which is still very obscure to the community (or at
least to me), which is: what is the complexity of creating packages? Why is
redoing packages with a different version number (say, by branching 5.6.1
into 5.6.2) "too heavy"? Could you please share some insights on what
happens behind the scenes?

Thank you,
