Well, I don't think the incremental patches are *that much* used.
Speaking for my case, my longterm release scripts do produce them
anyway since it's trivial with git, and I suppose many others do
as well.

I suggest that we disable the robot and wait for any possible
complaints which are to be expected anyway with a version change.
Then it'll be more productive to help tree owners to adapt their
scripts than it would be to keep the robot running.

Just my 2 cents,
Willy
