> Apache is asking to remove MD5 checksums from releases.
> *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
> Providing MD5 checksum files is now discouraged for new releases, but still 
> allowed for past releases.
> *Why this change:*
>  * MD5 is broken for many purposes ; we should move away from it.
> [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5#Overview_of_security_issues]
> *Impact for PMCs:*
>  * _*for new releases:*_
>  ** please do provide a SHA-file (one or more, if you like)
>  ** do NOT provide a MD5-file
