I don't know who or what Slackers is, in this context...

I looked for pkgdiff on repology.org, I did find one distro that
claims to have 1.8, but going to their page and hitting the "download"
link results in 404 (because it's a nonexistent tag on github).

Repology: https://repology.org//project/pkgdiff/versions

The supposed 1.8 distro page: http://freshcode.club/projects/pkgdiff

To me, it looks like anyone who packages anything newer than 1.7.2
is packaging a random git commit, not a stable release. Looks like
there's some activity upstream, but no release yet.
