Yes, indeed.

2013.05 was using the old fossies.org location you fixed in June


The fossies.org location used to be correct:

ls -lah ~download/dosfstools-3.0.16.tar.gz
-rw-r--r-- 1 peko peko 85K Mar  1 09:02 /var/lib/downloads/dosfstools-3.0.16.tar.gz

But now seems to instead contain 3.0.20. Perhaps a buggy redirect?

Looking at the wget output, it indeed it the reason:

Perhaps we can get the fossies.org admins to fix it?
