Subject: [gentoo-dev] Release files/portage snapshots auxiliary files naming scheme
Date: Wed, 10 Aug 2005 10:31:42
Message-Id: 1123669774.8761.13.camel@sponge.fungus

Currently the files that accompany our release files (ISO images,
stages) are named in the following scheme:

	*.asc for GPG signatures
	*.md5 for MD5 sums 

while the files that accompany our portage snapshots are named:

	*.gpgsig for GPG signatures
	*.md5sum for MD5 sums

I suggest we unify the naming scheme to the one currently in use by our
release files to avoid unnecessary confusion amongst our end-users -
unless of course there is a good reason for having different naming
schemes for release files and portage snapshots?
