The main problem with that is: we have no way to keep a valid sum of the
distfiles if it is autogenerated (in particular with github) and this sum is
With github this fortunately is a non-issue. Even though they autogenerate their
tar balls, they keep enough information to make them reproduciable. Just try:
2011.07.25 100% of 143 kB 177 kBps
SHA256 (2011.07.25) =2e61fa6c62e48d3f13e95a4ea7e7aead65345f6c88a688844ef921685dffe565
SHA256 (uzbl-0.0.0.2011.07.25.tar.gz) =2e61fa6c62e48d3f13e95a4ea7e7aead65345f6c88a688844ef921685dffe565
SIZE (uzbl-0.0.0.2011.07.25.tar.gz) = 146851
There still remain some minor issuses, like
* due to autogeneration, you're quite likely to get a http-redirect,
* filenames like 2011.07.25 are not too suitable for a distfile.
But they certainly can be fixed by an appropriate framework. The nice thing is,
github does the autogeneration right.
