After reading some of this thread (it was a bit much to read all) i checked
the example handbrake.
And i asked myself why doesn't handbrake use the original source mirrors and
why doesn't the source have the same md5sum as the original.
I do maintain a52dec, faac, faad2 and  when i saw that the md5sum differ
from the original i thought wtf?
Now if i do an diff it seems okey and doesn't differ except for a52dec that
has the top folder named differently so i guess the sources are good.
But it still makes me wonder why does handbrake use an own mirror and why
does the md5sum diff from the original.
We can't have different md5sum for the same source on SBo and we should use
the official mirrors if possible.
And if some sources are stripped or patched i rather have the patches for
each source and run them myself against the official source so i can keep up
on whats happening.
So i really think that handbrake should be considered broken in it's current
state due to link and md5sum mismatch.

That said i trust SBo and its maintainers and if you don't then don't use
