Further thoughts on this, if integrated with something like libraries.io or other that can alert to new versions. It may be possible to fully automate routine version bumps. Only requiring a human to bump if/when things fail. Routine version bumps suck, seem a waste of any humans time if it can be automated. This tool is a step in such direction, but can be further expanded upon and integrated into other things for more automation :) -- William L. Thomson Jr.
