Description of problem:
The Iso disc's have a md5checksum. So i can check the if the download 
was succesful or not.
There are now a few updates. Filesizes and names/dates are only 
displayed. So when i have a bad download, i will think it is a 
problem in the software an d i will report it against bugzilla.
So this wil cost the people trying to resolve the problem lots off 
time, because they can't reproduce the problem.
So i think it should be nice to have also the checksum displayed on 
the website. This is the best solution because if you store the 
checksum in a file; it could be that also that file was corrupted by 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.No MD5 Checksum available for updates

Actual Results:  None

Expected Results:  MD5 Checksums

Updates are always accompanied by a notification of the update.  At
the moment these are sent to the fedora-announce-list


Each update comes with a list of required package files and associated
md5 hashes.
