On the contrary :) Due to upgradeability reasons and 5.1.0 not being 
fully released at the time, we have one of the RC's (hence 
5.0.2gitsomething). When you upgrade, you can't go 5.1.0something to 5.1.0.

Sailfish will be following 5.1 'release' branch for qt modules for most 
part and we changed soon after the SDK snapshot to 5.1.0 versioning as 
5.1.0 got released.

When you see <version> git <something> it means some git version past
