That's very interesting. The Sourceforge and GIT repos for mumble yield
different md5sums:

$ md5sum *.tar.gz
228fff5975a61872b83052be97e2eabf  git_mumble-1.2.10.tar.gz
228fff5975a61872b83052be97e2eabf  SBo_mumble-1.2.10.tar.gz
14ab2e9174b7ca87623e63aa56dd6d5b  sf_mumble-1.2.10.tar.gz

The differences appear to be in the way the SF and git sources are
packaged.  Looks like SF stripped out a bunch of 3rd party licenses,
files and code, while adding other bits.  Except for some .git* specific
files, I don't yet know what this fully means.  When in doubt, use the
git version:


FYI: do not download "snapshots" as the md5sum will often be different
from the "release" and make sure you compare git to git and SF to SF for
downloads.  This is definitely going to cause some confusion. It will
cause issues with automatic SBo tools.

mumble and murmur share the same source.  BTW, 1.2.10 is identical to
1.2.9.  Upstream just bumped version number due to needed to recompile
there windows, mac, and linux static binary releases for openssl.

If you dynamically linked openSSL, you are safe to use 1.2.9.
