Hi Alan,

What you have written below looks correct to me. 

A simpler way to remember this is how the versioning works - (X.Y.Z) or (major.minor.patch). 

You only every update the “patch” or the “Z” number in the versioning system.

This is my first time doing this so I want to make sure I understand how to do it correctly. I have read the information here(http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/git/bug-fix-in-release-and-devel/) about bug fixes and here(http://bioconductor.org/developers/how-to/version-numbering/) regarding version numbering. Based on these, I do have a specific question. My current master branch is at version 1.1.0 for the devel branch while the release_3_13 branch is version 1.0.0. Should I checkout out either branch separately, make the fix and bump the versions (1.0.1 for release branch and 1.1.1 for the master branch) and then push both upstream separately (git push upstream <RELEASE_X_Y>/master) and afterwards push each to the repo (git push origin <RELEASE_X_Y>/master)?
