They must have repackaged the source:

Copy I downloaded when approving:
$ md5sum ~/slackware/sources/claws-mail-extra-plugins-3.8.0.tar.bz2

Copy I downloaded just now:
$ md5sum claws-mail-extra-plugins-3.8.0.tar.bz2
4776f6e0357a694f384349ac73b6da52  claws-mail-extra-plugins-3.8.0.tar.bz2

I checked the contents of the two packages and they are exactly the same.

Checking on sourceforge, I noticed the date of the "release" was now
Dec. 30th, i.e., after we checked it.

Checking a bit more, I discovered that the file I downloaded was
*named* .bz2, but was actually .gz:

$ file ~/slackware/sources/claws-mail-extra-plugins-3.8.0.tar.bz2
/root/slackware/sources/claws-mail-extra-plugins-3.8.0.tar.bz2: gzip
compressed data, from Unix, last modified: Fri Dec 16 09:41:26 2011

That's probably why they repackaged it :)

I'll fix this in our repo.
