Subject Fwd: checksum file Release Distribution Policy
Date Mon, 05 Mar 2018 20:57:45 GMT
Igniters,

Do we comply with the next release requirements? Vladimir as a 2.4 release
manager, could you double check that we are in a good state?

Subject: checksum file Release Distribution Policy
To: henkp@apache.org


Hi Pmcs,

   The Release Distribution Policy[1] changed regarding checksum files.
   See under "Cryptographic Signatures and Checksums Requirements" [2].

     MD5-file == a .md5 file
     SHA-file == a .sha1, sha256 or .sha512 file

  Old policy :

     -- MUST provide a MD5-file
     -- SHOULD provide a SHA-file [SHA-512 recommended]

  New policy :

     -- MUST provide a SHA- or MD5-file
     -- SHOULD provide a SHA-file
     -- SHOULD NOT provide a MD5-file

     Providing MD5 checksum files is now discouraged for new releases,
     but still allowed for past releases.

  Why this change :

     -- MD5 is broken for many purposes ; we should move away from it.
        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5#Overview_of_security_issues

  Impact for PMCs :

     -- for new releases :
        -- please do provide a SHA-file (one or more, if you like)
        -- do NOT provide a MD5-file

     -- for past releases :
        -- you are not required to change anything
        -- for artifacts accompanied by a SHA-file /and/ a MD5-file,
           it would be nice if you removed the MD5-file

     -- if, at the moment, you provide MD5-files,
        please adjust your release tooling.

  Please mail me (henkp@apache.org) if you have any questions etc.

  FYI :

   Many projects are not (entirely, strictly) checksum file compliant.
   For an overview/inventory (by project) see :

    https://checker.apache.org/dist/unsummed.html

  At the moment :

     -- no checksum : 176 packages in 28 projects ; non-compliant
     -- only MD5    : 495 packages in 44 projects ; update tooling
     -- only SHA    : 135 packages in 13 projects ; now comliant

   In many cases, only a few (among many) checksum file are missing ;
   you may want to fix that.
