Description Hasso Tepper 2021-04-23 05:15:54 UTC
frr-7.5.1.tar.gz downloaded from (6746148 bytes) is different from official tarball downloaded from (5840772 bytes).

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 Ionen Wolkens gentoo-dev 2021-04-23 12:48:11 UTC
Tarball used is:
And it's still the same as what's on the mirror, it was just generated differently (so nothing strange going on).

But I guess the release tarball does have a pre-generated ./configure and is smaller (notably the .xz), so I guess it could be used to skip eautoreconf and setting S= (no frr-frr naming).

Unsure if a particular reason it's not used (maintainers should know).

They didn't produce one for the 8.4.2 release either.
