The reason why I think we should release with 1.9 is because:

1) It's already on master and people may be using it already

2) It's compatible with the previous version that has been released
already (1.6).

So it won't break neither users that just get it from pip nor users
that clone the git repository.

It's a suggestion, if we all agree that the minimal version (1.1) is
the ideal version to the client to be pinned with when no other
version is specified, how can we best warn the users that we are going
to pin to this version for the future releases ?

Maybe we don't need to do that, but would be good to discuss and have
a consensus about it.

Yeah *right now* with the last released version if you don't specify a
version it will use 1.6. With the current code in the git repository
the version will used will be 1.9 if no other is specified.

About how we are going to move it back was my question as well. If we
all agree in moving it to 1.1 when no version is specified how we can
best warn the users that we are going to do that? Since it might break
their workflow. Maybe we shouldn't move it back, but let's keep the
conversation going so we can solve this.
