@mgd: I can give a summary. One party in the discussion says that SHA256 is no better than MD5 because here a hash is used for error checking, not for security. So SHA256 is no better than any CRC.

Care to give a summary?
I can't read that bbs w/o registering beforehand (which I won't do for the sole purpose to read your link).

Respectfully, I won't be switching to SHA256.
Reasoning behind this decision can be found here:

Second what the previous commenter said. Please switch to sha256sums.

GI_Jack commented on 2016-11-23 21:54

MD5sums are sooo 1996.

SHA256 plz

The md5 errors did occur for me too. They seem to only happen when I don't have mhash installd.
Maybe mhash should be added as a dependency for yaourt.

@LazyLucretia: It builds for me. Try to clean the build directory.

impact32.exe fails the md5sum validity test.
