Differences between tar.bz2 and tar.gz package

Hi All,

I've downloaded both the .tar.bz2 and .tar.gz packages of GnuCash
2.2.5, and to my surprise, their contents are different! Please see
the attachment.

Which one should I trust? Or anything wrong with my network?

One more thing: now packages' signatures are not released along with
the packages. I think it's still necessary for the vast users to have
a way to check the integrity of such a great piece of software.


Li, Yan
