        Yeah it is. GCC 7.2.1 is the version they use in their repo now until the GCC 7.3 stable release.

              Well as you can see from the link that you posted this isn't _7.1.1_ it's 7 branch and that download will change whenever the branch changes

              Also if you look at https://github.com/gcc-mirror/gcc/releases you can see there is no 7.1.1 release either, if distros are using snapshots, they should be specifying which one they're using

              I'm not meaning to get on at you, it's just this stupid numbering system GNU is using

              Clearly they should be tagging fixes when they arise

                Right. FWIW though, with GCC bumping their date in Git/SVN on a daily basis, it's easy to figure out when it was fetched... In Amazon Linux 2 case with testing it earlier it comes out to GCC 7.2.1 20170915. But I agree and am not a fan of GCC versioning either.
