Request: Auto Scale events do not increment version number

I do believe there should be some kind of identifier or log of scaling events, but I do find the auto increment of version number going up the same way it does when a new code deployment goes out when auto scaling to be a bit strange.

We’ve been debating how best to handle this. We started with just the most naive option “any change to an app increments version number”, but will likely exclude autoscaling / system events in the future.

Right now versions change when:

  1. You deploy
  2. Set a secret
  3. Autoscaling happens
  4. We make a system change to the app

I expect the last two won’t affect the version someday.
