Wiki: ASF Repository Project Wiki
My thoughts on the road map...
== Repository Policies ==
=== MD5 format ===
Different tools on different platforms write an md5 file in different formats.
The standard agreed for the ASF repository is:
This is equivalent to the output of GNU md5sum, without the "*" to indicate a
binary file. All files are to be treated as binary.
=== Permissions ===
All directories should be group writeable in the repository, however no files
should be group writable. This means that files can be removed but not changed
without an explicit override.
