    Description

      Hi,

      On the downloads, the SHA checksum doesn't indicate if it is SHA-1 or SHA-256. I was using the CouchDB cookbook for Chef (https://github.com/wohali/couchdb-cookbook) and kept encountering issues with doing a build through Vagrant when the checksum would never match. After using an online checker (http://onlinemd5.com/) I figured out the site was actually SHA-1, and the cookbook required SHA-256.

      Ideally it'd be nice to have both on there so no one would have to download it to get the checksum, but at least it should say which type of SHA checksum it is.

      Thanks!
      Rob
