gnome shell extension version checking when gnome is in a devel release

Is there a standard policy for whether gnome shell extensions are expected
to be constantly updated for the current gnome version when gnome is in a
devel release? For example, in Rawhide, gnome is currently at 3.15.2, so
metadata.json would have to include "3.15.2" for extension version checking
to work. (See ). I
understand this could be a maintenance headache, and I could just turn off
the extension version checking in Rawhide until gnome reaches 3.16, now that
I know what's going on.
