Subject [jira] [Commented] (MNG-6376) How to get rid of .md5's in www.a.o/dist/ ?
Date Sun, 18 Mar 2018 12:03:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6376?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16403994#comment-16403994
] 

Karl Heinz Marbaise commented on MNG-6376:
------------------------------------------

The point is that during a release the checksums (.md5 and sha1) are automatically being generated
and uploaded to the repositories and later to Maven Central (for example https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/maven/plugins/maven-ear-plugin/3.0.0/)...
Others and I are working to get the checksum generation into a single component (Linked issues)
which makes it easier to follow such things..but it takes time...also the [checkers|https://checker.apache.org/projs/maven.html]
gives already some hints. In the end I would says it is not difficult but it needs to be done....

>             Project: Maven

>          Components: General
>            Reporter: Henk Penning
>            Priority: Major
>
> ASF policy (strongly) recommends not to publish .md5's in [www.apache.org/dist/,|http://www.a.o/dist/,]
> that is : [https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/]
> -- How can maven users achieve this ?
> -- Is it possible (and sensible) to add something to maven, to make it easy (or easier)
?
> I must confess I don't know the first thing about maven etc ; hope my question makes
sense.
