Thu Aug 7 04:45:16 CEST 2014, or no tarballs for you

I'm almost amused, see this bug

So when I fetched it earlier the tarball had size 207200 bytes
Most of europe apparently gets a tarball of size 207135 bytes
When I download now again I get a tarball of size 206989 bytes

So I have to assume that googlecode now follows githerp in their tradition of being useless for code hosting. Is it really that hard to generate a consistent tarball once, and then mirror it?
Maybe I should build my own codehosting just to understand why this is apparently impossible ...
