Maintaining the release branches for older minor releases happens on a best effort basis.
### Updating dependencies
A few days before a major or minor release, consider updating the dependencies:
```
export GO111MODULE=on
go get -u ./...
go mod tidy
go mod vendor
git add go.mod go.sum vendor
```
Then create a pull request against the master branch.
Note that after a dependency update, you should look out for any weirdness that
might have happened. Such weirdnesses include but are not limited to: flaky
tests, differences in resource usage, panic.
In case of doubt or issues that can't be solved in a reasonable amount of time,
you can skip the dependency update or only update select dependencies. In such a
case, you have to create an issue or pull request in the GitHub project for
later follow-up.

* Run the benchmark for 3 days using the `/benchmark x.y.z` command, `x.y.z` being the latest stable patch release of the previous minor release series.
