Subject [Asfrepository Wiki] Trivial Update of "BrettPorter" by BrettPorter
Date Mon, 20 Jun 2005 12:08:38 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Asfrepository Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by BrettPorter:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  
  === Checksum format ===
  
- Different tools on different platforms write an md5 file in different formats.
+ Different tools on different platforms write checksum file in different formats.
  The standard agreed for the ASF repository is:
  {{{
- d1dcb0fbee884bb855bb327b8190af36 commons-collections-3.1.jar
+ d1dcb0fbee884bb855bb327b8190af36 *commons-collections-3.1.jar
  }}}
  
  The name of the checksum file should be the original filename with ".md5" appended, in lowercase.
  
- This is equivalent to the output of GNU md5sum, without the "*" to indicate a binary file.
All files are to be treated as binary.
+ This is equivalent to the output of GNU md5sum, where "*" indicates a binary file.
  
  It is recommended but optional to also store a SHA1 checksum, following the same guidelines.
The extension in this case is ".sha1" in lowercase.
+ 
+ Some files will only include the sum and not the filename. Tools should also be able to
parse this.
