Re: [eigen] Providing non-tag downloads over BitBucket

Ok, i went and searched for more information. Because of some
unrelated problem, bitbucket indeed made a change in how tarballs are
generated. The change was done in november. I'm surprised you (bsd
devs) only have this problem with eigen and not other packages.

Anyway, this is not something we can change... I've talked to some guy
from bitbucket, and they now are aware of the problemm s that we can
just hope they wont change this anymore... and update those checksums.
Sorry for that :-(
