#2167 Issue closed: [Question] Duplicate entries within 'releases'

Not really an issue, but may I ask why there are two identical files of each version under releases ?
E.g. you find an entry called "2.5" and another one called "rear-2.5", "2.4" and "rear-2.4" and so on.
Checksum and content of the linked files seem to be completely the same?

Is this a github thing?

I don't know about the magic details behind
but from looking at the tag names at
e.g. 2.5 and rear-2.5
I guess this is because of

Tag version in master branch:

git tag -s -a rear-2.xx -m "Rear release 2.xx"
git tag -s -a 2.xx -m "Rear release 2.xx"

in our Release process description at

I assume the two tags with different names
for the same thing (i.e. for the same git commit)
like 2.5 and rear-2.5 are intentional.
