You're using mirror.ctan.org as source, which redirects to different
mirrors.  These mirrors might have different revisions, as they
synchronize at different times (today, mean mirror age is 6.3 days, but
median only 12 hours).

You might find it easier to add an explicit mirror as your source:
Choose one from http://www.ctan.org/mirrors
