[R-pkg-devel] Best approach to cascading errors

At the moment three of my CRAN packages are reporting a NOTE. Although 
reported as a NOTE they are errors triggered by yesterday's update to 

In reality only one of the packages needs to be updated to resolve the 
problems in the three packages. I am getting ready to submit an updated 
version of package 'photobiology' to solve the problem. My doubt is it 
worthwhile to increase the version number of the two packages that 
depend on it, even they do not need any code changes only changing in 
the version number in the import of 'photobiology'? or is it abusing of 
CRAN's admins patience?

Best regards,
