[cross-project-issues-dev] Central Checksum service going away

Folks,

Years ago I enabled a centralized checksum service and attached it to the downloads/mirror page, as seen here:

http://eclip.se/3Q

The system is flawed in two ways:
- artifacts that change will have invalid checksums
- on occasion, a checksum is computed too early while a file is in transit, leading to invalid sums


Since the value provided by a central service is likely very low, and I lack the cycles to make something more robust, I'm deprecating the service. Please see https://bugs.eclipse.org/460490

Once retired, "sums.php" will return an empty response.
