Why would that be? I am creating the tarball from the same git tag. Yes
I am using tag name, so theoretically if upstream is ugly enough to
overwrite their tags with different contents, this will be a problem.
But normally I can re-create the tarball using "git archive" and the md5
checksum will stay the same. Can you tell me how exactly this won't work?
