Tim Allison commented on TIKA-2600:

I'm pretty sure we discussed this at some point, but I can't quickly find what 
we decided.  Apologies if this is a duplicate issue...

Should we stop including md5 and swap SHA1 (with file ext: .sha) for SHA512 
(with file ext: .sha512)?

> Don't use md5 checksum due to changes to the release distribuition policy

> To plagiarize from PDFBOX-4142:
> The release distribution policy was changes with regard to the checksums to 
> be used:
> Old policy :
> MUST provide a MD5-file
> SHOULD provide a SHA-file [SHA-512 recommended]
> New policy :
> MUST provide a SHA- or MD5-file
> SHOULD provide a SHA-file
> SHOULD NOT provide a MD5-file
