           Summary: Formatting of MD5 sum seen on the website
           Product: Commons
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P2
         Component: Digester
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: d.tonhofer@m-plify.com


This is more of a general issue for the whole of the Jakarta projects.

Every project publishes the MD5 sums of the tarballs/zip files. These
are used in a simple integrity verification process.

For 'digester', 

http://www.apache.org/dist/jakarta/commons/digester/binaries/commons-digester-1.6.tar.gz.md5

yields the md5sum only:

74c787cb8b7493dd19f83bf34db41543

It might be advantageous to show the combination of "md5sum + file name" 
output by md5sum instead, like this:

74c787cb8b7493dd19f83bf34db41543  commons-digester-1.6.tar.gz

This would make it easier to check the md5sum on the downloading side by
a simple copy/paste, as "md5sum --check" expects an "md5sum + file name" 
on stdout. 

This format is used by "commons daemon" for example, 

http://www.apache.org/dist/jakarta/commons/daemon/binaries/commons-daemon-1.0.tar.gz.md5

yields

bcf04fbc9c3f574fc67611bf59704927  commons-daemon-1.0.tar.gz
