Subject [jira] [Created] (INFRA-16992) Conflicting/ambiguous information in Release Distribution Policy
Date Sat, 08 Sep 2018 15:53:00 GMT
Sebb created INFRA-16992:
----------------------------

             Summary: Conflicting/ambiguous information in Release Distribution Policy
                 Key: INFRA-16992
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-16992
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Dists, Website
         Environment: http://www.apache.org/dev/release-distribution.html
            Reporter: Sebb


The Release Distribution policy mentions 'signature and checksum files' in a couple of places:

1) "The names of signature and checksum files MUST be formed by adding to the name of the
artifact the following suffixes"

2) "Regarding signature and checksum files"

Paragragh 1) disallows any suffixes other than .md5, .sha1, .sha261, .sha512

However para 2) allows .mds as a suffix; this conflicts with para 1).

I think the page needs to be clarified; para 1) applies to individual checksum files only.
