Subject [jira] [Commented] (INFRA-15700) Issues with default download page
Date Thu, 04 Oct 2018 11:32:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-15700?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16638096#comment-16638096

Henk Penning commented on INFRA-15700:
--------------------------------------

It would be easy to add something like (a combination of) :
https://www.apache.org/info/verification.html#checker
https://checker.apache.org/dist/verify.html

Note that that doesn't require any links to checksum, signature and/or KEYS files.

I'm tempted to add it, if only to see if it gets used :
https://mirror-vm.apache.org/~henkp/awstats/out/checker.apache.org/

> Strictly speaking, the default download page (e.g. https://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.lua/...)
does not meet the criteria for a download page.
> e.g. There is no link to the KEYS file, no sig, no MD5.
> I think it should be possible to improve the page to add links, particularly if the full
path to the artifact is provided.
> At the very least I think we could make the need to verify downloads much more obvious,
by having that in a separate paragraph.
