Well according to what I've seen in asterisk versions, the differences 
between 'Minor' and 'Patch', are that the 'Minor' includes a whole bunch 
of fixes that resolve some bugs in a given amount of time (several weeks 
usually), on the normal bug fixing release process. 'Patch' is just for 
a quick "urgent" fix or to introduce a security fix (the ones named 
AST-YYYY-XXX). It makes sense, because usually only one patch is made to 
the code on that kind of quick release.
