Alexey, I'm talking about the links on the website www.virtualbox.org, not the self-compiled ones. And there's no self-compiled ExtPack, unless you're getting your paycheck from Oracle... ;)
I went to the web.archive.org and it seems that this behavior changed somewhere between 5.2.8 and 5.2.10. Check the links here:
for the ExtPack with the revision in the filename:
for the ExtPack without the revision in the name:
I know it's splitting hairs right now, I just thought it was weird and something I might have missed. I always thought the revision to be part of the download filename, just like the main VirtualBox modules are.
