It is not a change request, and not part of any (named) bracnh, but
you can find it in gerrit's gitweb (or on the various mirrors like, github, launchpad,..);a=commit;h=020db1aa8142e57290f8a21e4df31185392d0e38

What do you mean with "again"?

It only exists on mirrors once the stuff is pushed to mirrors.
Before that the builds are assembled on pre-release server:

Source archives are created for all tags, but only the last version
will be kept on mirror, i.e. for 5.3.5 release, the 5.3.5 rc1 sources
will be removed/the ones for rc2 will be on download mirror.

That's were they are. and when you compare with 5.3.4 for example: → there
are the ones for rc2 only.

Why are you looking for the source archives in the first place?
For most usecases using the repositories directly is more convenient...
