Hi Bruce,

Few days ago I suggested idea about start going from md5 checksum for more trustable, for example sha256, or gpg signing.
Is some mistake in this idea? or not needing, or early? or some other reason?

I provided script in which I updated md5 checking method from 66 lfs packages for 51 and it works for all.

 Hmm.  I have the old version
 and a diff shows a lot of changes.  Must be a 
 stealth upgrade.
 I'll fix the book.  Thanks.
