 This archive is actually good, but the way there was thorny.
 2.3.15 was prepared "in the close" (due to the two CVEs and the embargo
 on details and patches) and the colleagues managed to produce two different
 tar balls, both of them not "really" correct (one was missing a patch,
 the other one contained erroneous .so files).
 We've released 2.3.16 last Thursday with the normal release process
 ("everything in the open, taking public git with the published tag to
 build tarballs from it").  It has a few small fixes 2.3.15, but most
 important, it's one single tarball with one single GPG signature.
 While at it, we decided to re-package 2.3.15 into a proper tarball that
 matches the git tag, *and* has no extra garbage in it - so there's three
 different 2.3.15 tarballs floating around now.  I think distinfo has
 the checksum of the "good source, but extra files in" tarball, while
 swupdate has the new one now.
 Long story cut short: please bump to 2.3.16.
 Apologies again...
