Thanks for the pointer. Alpine is already using the point release with the now stable checksum :-)

#33 Generated archives have unstable checksum due to changing timestamps 9 months ago

Thanks for the pointer. I'm pretty unfamiliar with hg as I usually work with git, but to me it looks like setting the mtime parameter in the call to archive() to the timestamp of the last change would fix the issue. If that is true, no change in upstream mercurial would be required.

Maybe someone familiar with the source can quickly add the parameter and check if this fixes the issue?

I would like to gently remind that this is still an issue for distributions packaging software hosted here. Given that the fix should be relatively simple (adding the -n parameter to the call of gzip), it would be nice if this could be addressed.

Hi,

would instead of tarball releases tagged releases be possible? That combined with the hopefully soon to come stable archives would be make life for distros packaging this much easier :-)
