[bitbake-devel] [PATCH 0/2] Improve usability of checksums

I'd heard some complaints around the usability of checksums and, having done
some recipe work recently, must agree with them.
This series ams to make using checksums less intrusive by:

a) Removing the requirement that if one type of checksum is defined the other
must be too.
b) Reporting all sum mismatches at once
c) Enabling sums to be defined as a parameter of a SRC_URI


The following changes since commit dca46cc2e1c75b6add2c4801e2994a4812745f5b:

  fetch2: Export additional variables to the fetchers (2011-10-05 14:23:16 +0100)

are available in the git repository at:
  git://github.com/incandescant/bitbake checksum

Joshua Lock (2):
  fetch2: improve usability of checksums
  fetch2: enable checksum definition as SRC_URI parameter
