Thanks for noticing this. But the changes are strange, especially such:


There is a test vanishing? Besides, changing tarballs without changing
version is just not good. Did you complain to upstream about this mess?

Do you have an old version of the tarball handy and can show a full
diff of old vs. new? If not … you can grab one from
This one's the old one and will stay that way without manual
intervention since the mirror is not configured to roam about and check
if distributed source tarballs change. It's a nice example of upstream
breaking infrastructure. It's tiny minority of projects that change
release tarballs after the fact (well, not considering those that don't
do any release tarballs at all), and we shouldn't let that bad
behaviour just pass. This is a bug for upstream to at least do a proper
re-release with incremented bugfix version.
