new hashes (SHA512, SHA3) in apt metadata and .changes files?
I noted that some derivatives have introduced SHA512 into their
Release files (and probably Packages/etc). I was wondering if it is
time to drop or deprecate MD5 from the apt metadata and replace it
with SHA512 and or SHA-3. Thoughts?
If so, here is the list of software that probably needs updating:
Side note; is there an SHA-3 shared library yet?
Side note; is SHA512 accepted/checked by apt in Release files yet? If
so it would be great if the spec at  could be updated for that.
