|Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] md5 checksums not matching on some eclipse.org downloads|
Our servers cache the checksums for optimal performance. Checksums
are queued for computation after the first ever download of any
given file. I have cleared them for this file, waited a bit, and
they were recreated. The retrieved checksums are now correct.|
This means that, at some point, the file on disk was altered.
Is this a glitch? I don't know. In a security mindset, I can see how this can be a feature. In my unqualified opinion, once a file is on download.eclipse.org it should never be altered, but instead replaced with a new version.
