 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.
