Sorry... the SHA1 of what? Of the commit tagged as 4.8.3?

This last statement contradicts the previous one (same functionality,
only legal/copyright changes). Has this fix landed in the 4.8 branch?
Are you cherry picking it along with the license changes?

Can't you push a commit on top of 4.8.3 that updates the license
files, and tag that commit 4.8.3-1?
Perhaps it's premature, but since the license headers have already
been updated in the 4.8 branch, and it (hopefully) already contains
the aforementioned MinGW fix, I would recommend to release 4.8.4 as
soon as possible, instead of 4.8.3-1...
