The size warnings (during fetch) will essentially always happen. The
checksumming/size checking after fetch is fine.
I really recommend all USE_GITHUB ports use a mirror as their default
MASTER_SITE and use the GH MASTER_SITE secondary. This will prevent
checksum errors in the future if they change things again, and avoid the
size warnings during fetch.
MASTER_SITES= http://some.mirror.com/ \
This will check the mirror first, then check github.
