Please excuse my ignorance, but why are the download files named
*.tar_0.gz ? Why the '_0' ?

Also I noticed that the git-repo with the latest commit being...

   commit d7a940bb308d001b5d2b196174fee36c7daa61d6

       Update version to 20150619.

differs from the two source code tarballs with regard to
source/compiler/asllookup.c by the git-diff file that I've
attached. But I don't see that patch mentioned in the git-repo.
So where did those changes come from? And do they really belong
in the tarballs? And if yes, why aren't they in the git-repo?

Thanks,
Dean
