Yes they do, and I have checked them.  But this is putting an additional
layer of trust into whoever created the ISO.  That's really not
satisfactory and doesn't give me a path of trust to the package

(Unless Debian post ISO md5sums on the site somewhere, against which I
could compare the linuxiso sums... but I haven't seen this posted
anywhere either... is it?)
