          Priority: P3
            Bug ID: 121159
          Assignee: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org
           Summary: Instructions for checksum verification on Mac OS X are
                    inaccurate
          Severity: minor
        Issue Type: DEFECT
    Classification: Infrastructure
                OS: Mac OSX, all
          Reporter: spdn@gmx.de
          Hardware: Mac
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
           Version: AOO 3.4.0
         Component: Downloads
           Product: www

http://www.openoffice.org/download/chec ... html#howto
section: "This is how you verify with ASC and KEYS hashes on Mac OS"

Problems:
line 2: it suggests typing (curl <address>), but this does not generate the
KEYS file needed in line 3
line 4: fails with several syntax errors, apparently connected to eofs,
apparently connected to (")-chars missing. Since I do not fully understand what
happens on this line, I am not sure what else is correct or incorrect.

Fixes/Suggestions:
line 2: altering the instructions to (curl <address> -o KEYS) works nicely
line 4: it would be great if someone could check the whole line, not just check
for missing ("). Also/Alternatively, since the whole (" 0x '…' ") part in the
beginning and the (awk …) command may not be super obvious in their workings to
everyone, a comment on what the substitution command $KEYID does in the end,
might help.
