[Slackbuilds-users] Problem with two GO language packages

When installing two of the go language packages, I received identical
errors when running the Slackbuild script.  The problem isn't with the
script, but with the source code.  Tar complains that it isn't a tar

I can get the source to work by unzipping it, then untarring it, then
retarring and rezipping.  Then the Slackbuild script can build it and
I can install it.

My question is whom do I contact about the source code itself.  I've
the email address from the SlackBuilds page for each package.

The source code packages are:
go.net-98.tar.gz    referenced from golang-googlecode-gonet
go.tools-588451.tar.gz   referenced from golang-googlecode-gotools
