I was just wondering, will you be dropping the md5.sum files from the 
package directories at the same time?  I'd be happy to see them 
disappear from the mirrors - they're an internal thing, right?  Just 
this week I noticed that cygwin64-gcc-4.8.3-4-src.tar.xz's md5 checksum 
in its md5.sum file was incorrect (but its md5 in setup.ini was of 
course correct).

Though I'm probably the only person on the planet who cares. :-)  It's 
just an idle question.
