Are you referring to a potential source tarball release?  If so,
yes, it might be a good idea to release such a point update soon.

It would make everything easier for me to do that if a full patch file
could be provided that would apply cleanly to the extracted TDE sources
from the complete 3.5.13 tarball--this would avoid having to republish the
3.5.13 tarballs, which would add several gigabytes of files to the already
strained mirror system.
