A zc.builout extension that allows you to specify and enforce md5 checksums for all downloads

Project Description

Simple usage

Use a buildout.cfg like this and the md5sum for the download-python target will be checked:

extensions = buildout-md5sums
md5sums = = 376df294ae16e9601da989f8c4d8d432 = 0e8c9ec32abf5b732bea7d91b38c3339
parts = download-python

python = 2.6.6

recipe =
url =${versions:python}/Python-${versions:python}.tar.bz2

Using this setup, you can switch the downloaded version of python on the command line while keeping the cryptographic checking alive:

$ ./bin/buildout versions:python=2.7 install download-python

Disallowing downloads without md5sums

If your buildout.cfg like this, the extension will make the buildout fail if there is a download using without a md5sum specified:

extensions = buildout-md5sums
allow-picked-downloads = false
