: 1. There is not yet a consensus about what the correct goals and
: mechanisms for these checksums are.
: 2. I would object to any package-building tool written by Christoph
: being made Standard without a thorough design and code review
debsums is no package building tool. Maybe you should review the issues
And why in the world are you unable to finally come up with a release of
dpkg that includes the checksums? You first said that you would do such a
thing about one year ago.
I only released the stuff when I got the
impression that you abandoned the issue. Sometimes I think you are
abandoning the project or even worse trying to sabotage it. There is a
huge list of things that are not done because they are in your ballpark
and no one else is daring to make the necessary changes.
I have the impression that there is a dysfunctional relationship between
debian and you.
