Bug#164889: md5sum <FILE produces spurious ` -' in output
The Technical Committee has decided:
> 11. We [require] that the package maintainer indicate
> whether they would prefer the bug submitter to prepare a patch.
> If so then when the submitter has prepared a reasonable patch, the
> maintainer should accept and apply it if they approve; otherwise,
> or if they prefer, they should do the necessary work themselves.
(I'm the submitter of one of the two reports of this problem.)
