github provides the contents of the git repository for every tag.
This is the file you saw.
When packaging releases, the auto* tools include generated files like
configure scripts so that downstreams don't need to have auto*
installed. Well-behaved upstreams provide these tarballs, and jo is
one of these. However, the github infrastructure in pkgsrc was used
incorrectly, so the tag-tarball was downloaded, not the release one.
I've just fixed that.
Now the correct tarball will be fetched from github as well.
