Hello folks,

What is the policy of the project about GDAL version?
The latest stable release of GDAL is 2.3.2 but recent wheels of rasterio  are built onto 2.3.1

Good question! My intent for the wheels is to make it easy for people to try Rasterio and to be able to easily provision CI servers for testing Python software that requires Rasterio. There isn't really any policy yet except that I do keep the GDAL and other libraries versions under revision control so that they don't regress and try to keep them not too far out of date.

I will happily accept PRs at to update libraries to the latest stable versions. As to format drivers, I would like to minimize drivers to keep the wheels under 20MB and keep wheel build times to under 20 mins.
