   See RFC 2119 : https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2119.txt

   "MUST", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT" etc are technical terms.
   RFC 2119 explains what they mean.

   Hint :

     MUST   == obligation ; a strict requirement
     SHOULD == recommendation ;

   Note : the policy can't say "MUST supply SHA checksum",
   because many projects have older releases in /dist/
   that are MD5-only ; under "new policy", that is
   frowned upon, but not forbidden.
