• Use of md5sum in PKGBUILD files


    The use of md5sum in PKGBUILD files is no longer encouraged. Can we stop using it and move to sha25sum instead?

  • s/sha25sum/sha256sum.

    Had to reply as forum is buggy and trying to edit a post results in an error that you cannot create a poll. :anguished:

  • This has been discussed at nauseum over on Arch mailing list. There really isn’t any point in using stronger hashes in the PKGBUILD. See the latest thread about this topic for complete details.
