Never used it, but here are some suggestions:
Provide a patch to the project.
Unpack the archive and check it manually
Unpack the archive and repack as zip, then use tentacles again.
If there is a zip archive as well as a tar.gz, then use Tentacles to
check the zip, and a diff program to check that the contents of the
two archives are the same.
(which they should be, barring any EOL considerations).
