I don't understand what you mean by "the" md5.sum file. There is a md5 file for every package. If you open <> and traverse into the release subdirectory and look at any package dir, there is a md5.sum file with timestamp corresponding to the same date as the packages. In other words, I don't see anything wrong.


Yes, I know that.

The original message could have had the phrase
"at the top level" though I thought, obviously
incorrectly, that the explicit path to the
containing directory would be clear.

Click on this link to see the existing file:

or this one to see that it is missing:

This is the md5.sum file for setup.exe, setup.ini etc.

Note that the file mod times are "fresh" in those
sites that have it.
