Subject [jira] Created: (INFRA-798) Exclude *.md5 from mirroring
Date Thu, 11 May 2006 07:55:04 GMT
Exclude *.md5 from mirroring
----------------------------

         Key: INFRA-798
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-798
     Project: Infrastructure
        Type: Task
    Security: public (Regular issues) 
  Components: Mirrors  
    Reporter: Henri Yandell


This has come up a few times in conversation - that checking the md5 on the mirror against
the file downloaded from the mirror does not add anything security-wise. Instead the user
should be checking the md5 on the main apache site.

To that end - the suggestion that has come up each time is to exclude the md5's from the mirroring.
