[Interest] How do I get the most robust version of 5.10

I have been using Qt-5.7 for a while.
I needed a little help and knew it was no longer "supported"
so I initiated the process of upgrading to 5.10.1
(Yes, it is a process.)

With 5.10.1, one of my apps was crashing and down in a Qt source file.
I knew it could be my fault but, just to
get the commercial-three-day-help-pipe-line flowing, I submitted a bug report
It turned out to be a Qt bug and the help line provided a patch.

Now I am wondering what other bugs are lingering for which a patch is available.
The patch appears to have originated back in late February.
Why isn't there a 5.10.2

So, what am I doing wrong. How do I get the most robust
version of 5.10. Should I ignore all offerings from the Digia web site
and just try to pull something directly from the Git repo.

What about all of the other poor saps out there who think they
are getting a robust version when they download 5.10.1, the
latest version available from the web site.
