As there seems to be constant problems with md5sums, would it be
possible to set up a http-service offering md5-sums of the distribution-
and update files thus removing the need to have related security posting
whenever you need to check the authentity of any file you have. These
transfers could possibly be signed by SuSE:s private pgp key so that
authentity could be checked against the public key printed on SuSE
manual.
