KDE Applications Versioning

for frameworks, it is all very nice and automatic, the version in the CMakeLists.txt get auto-updated on each KF 5.x release.

It seems to me, for the "applications" collection, something similar might make sense.

E.g. I missed to ever update the Kate version since 5.0 and other applications like Dolphin and Konsole seem to have similar problems.

Would it make sense to have some "we auto-define some version CMake var" to KDE Application release number?
For e.g. bug reports that would make all things easier.
Or do I miss some magic already in place (e.g. the opensuse packages seems to have patched release numbers, at least for Konsole).
