Vim adds a tag for every single commit they make, fixes or not, so this
approach would in effect be updating to random development snapshots. I
would rather have a more conservative update strategy, and update to the
original 8.2 release. If you look at the homepage, 8.2 is the version they
announced as the new release: https://www.vim.org/

That's also what 'devtool latest-version vim' should currently report and
'devtool upgrade' upgrade to: I purposely cut off the point releases and
left only the major.minor part there.
