How should I increment crate version if only documentation was updated?

It doesn’t feel right to increment the patch level since no code was updated. Is there a x.y.z-whatever that makes sense here?

No, a patch release is absolutely fine for that, regardless of where you might stand on the takes-Semver-seriously spectrum or thinks-rust-is-somehow-special spectrum. :slight_smile:

The "-whatever" alternative would be strictly more confusing than the simple patch release.
