If someone asks why this has been released as
1. updating tarballs for a given release is only possible if the new file has a
different name (e.g. an updated tar ball for kmymoney 4.8.1 need to be have
version 4.8.1-0 or, see https://phabricator.kde.org/T7093#111956)
2. On building the windows release with obs I first tried to use an updated
version of 4.8.1-1 as suggested by Ben Cooksley, which was not allowed as obs
package version - I was forced to use
3. is source code compatible to 4.8.1 (it is build from the 4.8.1 tag),
it contains only updated translations, therefore using a complete different
version like 4.8.2 looks not applicable.
4. On releasing 4.8.1 it was planned to update the tarballs as soon as
possible, but unfortunally it took about 3 months to get the "whatsnew" page
translated for about 55% of languages for kmymoney. For example estonian
translation will be probably available at the end of Januar or Februar 2018 (I
was really surprised that it takes so long and that the process has so many
5. Using 4.8.1 as version for the updated translation seems not to bee possible
3 month later, because version 4.8.2 is already targeted at Febr 2018
