Yes, the artifacts are the same as in the original proposal.

I had missed this fact, providing a zip archive will be no problem.

I took the release signing from the following document:

Which states:

  gpg --print-md MD5 [fileName] > [fileName].md5
  gpg --print-md SHA1 [fileName] > [fileName].sha

I changed this slightly to:

  gpg --print-md MD5 < [fileName] > [fileName].md5
  gpg --print-md SHA1 < [fileName] > [fileName].sha

Are either of these the correct method to use?

Should md5sum and sha1sum be used instead? If this is the case I am guessing I
should propose a correction of the release signing documentation.

Are these issues significant enough to block the release?
