Fwd: Debian derivatives census: missing SHA-1 hashes

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi,

Getting involved in the Debian Derivative Census is a great way to preserve the life of your Maemo software and potentially expand your user base. This forwarded email contains a lot more information and some requests for the use of SHA1 sums in the Maemo archive.

Regards,

Jeremiah

> Hi all,
>
> If you are receiving this mail that means you are participating in the
> Debian derivatives census[1] and that your entry has an issue.
>
> Please ensure that:
>
> 1. Your APT repositories have SHA-1 hashes for every source and
> binary package so we can compare with old Debian packages.
> 2. If you are using SHA-1 hashes in your APT repositories, please
> ensure that there is such a hash for every single file,
> especially for all the source package files.
> 3. SHA-256 hashes are not and will not be used by the census, but
> Debian strongly encourages the use of hashes stronger than
> SHA-1.
>
> The reason for these is that we are pursuing integration of information
> about packages from derivatives into Debian infrastructure and that
> integration will be using SHA-1 hashes to determine if packages were
> ever in Debian. Please note that if you are inheriting Packages or
> Sources files from Debian then missing SHA-1/SHA-256 hashes could be the
> fault of the Debian archive (http://bugs.debian.org/637563).
>
> In addition please make sure there is a contact point listed in the
> maintainer field of your census page.
>
> While you are editing your page, please fill in as much of the fields as
> you have data for.
>
> Please direct any questions you have to the derivatives list[3] or IRC
> channel[4]. We strongly encourage you to join both of these.
