             Summary: Incorrect/incomplete instructions on download page
                 Key: FLAGON-452
             Project: Flagon
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Sebb

The download page has some instructions that are not quite right.

$ gpg --verify apache-flagon-{product}-{version}
should read
$ gpg --verify apache-flagon-{product}-{version} 

The "SHA512 Signatures" section refers to md5 and md5sum; it should refer to 
sha512 and shasum.

Also the sha512 command does not work for all flavours of unix; it may be 
necessary to use:

shasum -a 512

If you actually try comparing the output of the appropriate command with the 
contents of the sha512 file, they are somewhat different. So either the text 
should be updated to note the format difference (an example would be helpful), 
or the sha512 files should be created with the expected format. That would be 
best, as the sha512 command can then be used to check the value, as follows:

sha512sum -c apache-flagon-{product}-{version}
(or shasum -a 512 -c)
If you try this currently, it fails because the checksum line is not understood.
