You *already* are using version numbers and bumped it to 5.15.3:

This is unreasonable if you're going to make us need fixes from there.
I'd rather we didn't pretend this is something other than what it is:
a community maintained uplift of Qt 5.15 while Plasma works to move to
Qt 6.

Also, that URL is unstable, you'd get different things each time you'd
fetch from it based on the HEAD of that branch.
