Source code of version in extras is here: http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/pool/fremantle/free/source/c/curl/
tarball curl_7.25.0.orig.tar.gz from extras-devel is same as
upstream 7.25.0 version on: http://curl.haxx.se/download.html
I checked also additional patches and all are only compile flags, nothing more.
So I did not found anything strange in source code (no backdoor, etc..).
Package is only "New upstream release". But still it is bad that anybody
can push new version of maemo core packages (also if it fixing strange bugs)
without any informations...
