Hello -- I'm a packager for NixOS, a Linux distribution.  Recently, some
packages of ours started to fail to build because the checksums of
dictionary URLs changed.

Looking at your website, I see

Re-release of all dictionary exports: Due to a bug in the IPA
generation, some dictionaries had incorrect IPA transcriptions for
headwords. This has been fixed for all dictionaries now.

I wanted to request that, in future, if dictionaries are regenerated
they be released as new versions, so that checksums don't change.

Alternatively, if this is not possible, is there a different location
from which I can download the dictionaries where URLs will be stable?
