 If a stealth update had occurred, the checksums would have changed, but
 you did not indicate changed checksums. In fact the checksums do change if
 we use your patch as-is, because your patch makes the port download from a
 tarball automatically generated by github from the git repository. Since
 this project also offers release downloads, we should use those instead,
 by using `github.tarball_from releases`. The checksums match those from
 sourceforge, so no stealth update has occurred and there is no need to
 change the `dist_subdir`.

 Note also that the `github.setup` line is meant to replace, not
 supplement, the `name` and `version` lines; you would only keep the `name`
 or `version` lines if their values differed from those specified in the
 `github.setup` line, but in this case (and in most cases) they don't.

 The cantera web site still tells people to download from SourceForge. You
 might want to let them know they should update that to refer people to
 github instead.
