Dear Trond,

  thank you for your message. I imagine that you are referring to the changes
between the initial release of the maildir patch, and the current release of
the maildir patch.

  A user notified that his compiler failed to build alpine when patched with
the maildir patch due to the existence of a non-declared function in the dummy
driver. This needed modifications of the maildir patch. While I was on it, I
also got rid of many warnings that
the compiler gave me. This resulted in many changes to the patch.

  I am sorry that the combination of "patch" + version + SHA256 does not
determine a unique "patch". The reason why this happens is because I sometimes
need to clear bugs in the code, and so the patch changes, making the
corresponding change in the SHA256, which seems
to be the issue you are having. I do publish the SHA256 sums, and they change
not because I am evil towards you but because I need to make changes to the
code. If you are interested in preserving the SHA256 you will have to download
the patch to your site, but then you
will not get any updates I might make.

  One more time I apologize for this inconvenience, but the behavior you just
found will continue happening when I need to fix bugs or add new features. In
the case that just happened, it was to solve issues with compilation for a

  I hope this helps.
