This is weird.  I get that they do:

4bb9b0c1642d36265c807a04da3d6f60  gpsd-2.32.tar.gz
4bb9b0c1642d36265c807a04da3d6f60  gpsd-2.32.tar.gz.1

Ohhh, maybe I accidentally used the source from the upstream srpm the first time
around (and perhaps that source tarball doesn't match).  Weird.

srpm as indicated below.

Ok, ignoring error.

Oops.  My bad.  Fixed.

Also fixed.

Also ignoring.
