It's not just about official or not. One day the Qt Company *will* release 
5.15.3 (as per the KDE/FreeQt agreement), no?
So we cannot release something called 5.15.3 which is in fact different 
(older) from what will one day be 5.15.3.

I'm unsure whether we should stick to "those are patches, grab them"
or, for convenience, giving it a version number that is more than 5.15.2, less 
than 5.15.3, says it comes from kde, and allows multiple releases....
