Is it possible to verify what have been changed in the rerolled distfile?

The previous maildir.patch.gz can be reached at http://alpine.x10host.com/alpine/patches/alpine-2.24/maildir.patch.gz

Maybe these files should be placed in versioned directories in /usr/ports/distfiles, e.g. /usr/ports/distfiles/alpine-2.24.

The above host is unreachable for me, right now.
Comment 4 Trond.Endrestol 2021-10-01 15:11:07 UTC
alpine.x10host.com is alive again.
I have reached out to chappa@washington.edu awaiting a reply.

Subject: Re: Recent change to maildir.patch.gz

Dear Trond,

  thank you for your message. I imagine that you are referring to the changes between the initial release of the maildir patch, and the current release of the maildir patch.

  A user notified that his compiler failed to build alpine when patched with the maildir patch due to the existence of a non-declared function in the dummy driver. This needed modifications of the maildir patch. While I was on it, I also got rid of many warnings that
the compiler gave me. This resulted in many changes to the patch.

  I am sorry that the combination of "patch" + version + SHA256 does not determine a unique "patch". The reason why this happens is because I sometimes need to clear bugs in the code, and so the patch changes, making the corresponding change in the SHA256, which seems
to be the issue you are having. I do publish the SHA256 sums, and they change not because I am evil towards you but because I need to make changes to the code. If you are interested in preserving the SHA256 you will have to download the patch to your site, but then you
will not get any updates I might make.

  One more time I apologize for this inconvenience, but the behavior you just found will continue happening when I need to fix bugs or add new features. In the case that just happened, it was to solve issues with compilation for a compiler.

  I hope this helps.
