FFmpeg has a linear development scheme, how can you call
a continuous versioning scheme useless? It reflects 1:1
on how FFmpeg is developed.

But the development here is not release-driven (note that
I am not saying it should or shouldn't be, I am just
describing how it does work for more than a decade),
just look at how the latest release was made: A random
snapshot was chosen, not even current known possible
security issues or regressions were relevant.
