Let's keep the discussion exclusively on sugar-devel, please.
Cross-posting can cause thread fragmentation. I also don't see any
value in discussing all Dextrose-related technical decisions on two
lists in parallel.
I've adjusted Mail-Followup-To accordingly, so if you use a proper MUA
( ;) ) Reply-to-all should do The Right Thing (i.e. drop the Dextrose
list and me).

How about adding checksums, too? That way you can verify file integrity
and even download it using bittorrent (if an sha1 checksum is included).
The format used by JHbuild seems like a good candidate:


olpc-activity-checksum should be optional and allowed multiple times.
