shows the same MD5 HASH calculation you obtain before upload. You can now be comfortable the TDF 
mirrors are distributing exactly what you posted. And of course if they were not, you'd need to 
correct with another upload attempt until it is received correctly.

alternate distribution DVD uploads

here is the results of the md5sum command for the ISO file I uploaded to
the server admin.

Very reasonable that you would not have, or want, direct write access to the pool holding the 
master copies for distribution out to the mirrors--that is syssamdin magic better handled by the 
folks running the mirror service.
My suggestion is that you verify that the MirrorBrain HASH values for the .ISO file against what 
you created locally prior to you upload.  That way you can be certain that what you prepared will 
make it intact out to the mirrors. Each user then must be responsible for verifying their own 
downloads, with some trust that what is being downloaded is your original. Using the HASH values 
facilitates that at all steps--but you set the foundation for it.
You can wait for it to post up to the mirrors and grab the MirrorBrain HASH (as either the Info, 
or Details link--same content), or you can ask your contact to provide you the HASH value of what 
they received at the transfer server.  Or if you're conservative, just do both.
Practice a bit with the md5sum, md256sum and you'll soon make it habit for all your data 
transfers--even locally between your computers.
