+Downloading latest pricing data from an S3 Bucket
+-------------------------------------------------
+
+Since July 2020, we now run a daily job as part of our CI/CD system which
+scrapes pricing data for various providers and publishes pricing data to a
+public read-only S3 bucket.
+
+Pricing file data is available at the following locations:
+
+* https://libcloud-pricing-data.s3.amazonaws.com/pricing.json
+* https://libcloud-pricing-data.s3.amazonaws.com/pricing.json.sha256
+* https://libcloud-pricing-data.s3.amazonaws.com/pricing.json.sha512
+
+First file contains actual pricing JSON file and the second and third contain
+SHA 256 and SHA 512 sum of that file content.
+
+You can use the content of the sha sum files to implement efficient file
+downloads and only download pricing.json file if the content has changed.
+
+You can do that by fetching the sha sum file, caching the sha sum and only
+downloading ``pricing.json`` file is the sha sum value has changed.
+
+An alternative to using the content of the sha sum file is caching the value
+of the ``ETag`` HTTP response header which you can retrieve by issuing HTTP
+``HEAD`` request against the ``pricing.json`` URL. HEAD request will only
+return the object metdata without the actual content.
+
+For example:
+
+.. sourcecode:: bash
+
+    curl --head https://libcloud-pricing-data.s3.amazonaws.com/pricing.json
+
+    HTTP/1.1 200 OK
+    x-amz-id-2: c8Mer3VtRYWGeKtKlbgwebn3BsVQt+Z/WKKPjk3NcsRSK23BzE6OQDIogzIR2oJGJRmOtS4ydjA=
