>          Components: Documentation
>            Reporter: Henk Penning
> Policy document
> says :
> "An SHA checksum SHOULD also be created and MUST be suffixed .sha. The checksum SHOULD
be generated using SHA512".
> Putting all kinds of SHA checksums is a .sha file is not handy if/when you want to verify
that the checksum is correct.
> -- SHA-1 sums must go into a .sha1 file
> -- SHA-256 sums must go into a .sha256 file
> -- SHA-512 sums must go ino a .sha512 file
> -- a .sha file must contain a SHA-1 sum
> The last point because in the old days, in /dist/, .sha meant SHA-1.
> If there are no objections, I'll fix the doc in a couple of days.
> There are now some 1000 .sha files ; half of them contain SHA-1 sums ; many TLP's have
them. The other half contain SHA-512 sums ; only a few TLP's have those.
