I don't quite agree. If we really want to use 'semantic' prefix, then
we should do:

	package: foo: bump version to ...

Using 'package/foo' really looks way too much like a path, and

this doesn't make much sense to me, because there is nothing named
infra/pkg-generic in the tree. "infra: pkg-generic: " would be OK, but
we have never really used such 'semantic' naming so far.
