The book is rebuilt daily and the udev-config and bootscripts are
extracted from the book's xml source. This causes a daily change in the
tar files due to timestamps. It also means the md5sum changes for these
files daily. There is a fixup in the book's Makefile to update the book
to the current checksums.
The fixup ensures that today's book and today's udev-config and
bootscript tarballs match up. That's good. It also means that today's
tarballs don't match the md5sums in yesterday's book even when the
contents don't change. That's unfortunate, but I don't know of a better
way to automate incorporation of changes for the tarballs.
