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.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] Use of MD5 and other HASHvalues of LibOpackage downloads and
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.
