Bug Description

This updates the GNOME version number reported in Settings > Details > About to 3.28.2

This is the final scheduled point release for GNOME 3.28.

Since we're updating most of the other GNOME packages to 3.28.2, it's appropriate to do this update too. (We might hold this update in -proposed a bit until we update say gnome-shell to 3.28.2)

Tne new version also fixes a memory leak and includes some translation fixes.


Test Case
From Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, open the Settings app.
Navigate to Details > About
The GNOME version number should say 3.28.2

Regression Potential
There is a micro-release exception for GNOME:
