Looks like you guys are a) building the release packages on Windows,
and b) using Microsoft's FCIV tool to generate MD5 and SHA1 hashes.
This is something I tried to do at first as well.

To get a standard output for that, you should use the standard Unix
tools... You can download gnu coreutils binaries compiled for Windows
from here:

http://s.apache.org/rV

Install that package, and use the included md5.exe/sha1.exe programs
to generate your checksums, and it will be exactly Apache's standard
for that (instead of messing around with munging the output from
FCIV).. Plus you get a bunch of other handy standard unix commandline
apps without needingt to install cygwin...

Thanks,
Troy
