SHA-1 and SHA-256 might be what folks are more used to checking against.
The more encrypted traffic the better, was my thinking.

Ah, I see.

Done that.

BTW, how did you compress the tar file?  I was checking to see if it
could be made smaller, out of curiosity, and gzip 1.8-2 here could only
make the tar file bigger regardless of the -{1..9} option.

    $ wc -c nmh-1.7-RC1.tar.gz ? | sed '$d' | sort -n
     1386731 nmh-1.7-RC1.tar.gz
     1387508 9
     1388430 8
     1392972 7
     1396457 6
     1416668 5
     1463502 4

Cheers, Ralph.
