An informal and incomplete check of sites from

I don't understand what you mean by "the" md5.sum file. There is a md5
file for every package. If you open
<http://mirrors.kernel.org/sources.redhat.com/cygwin/> and traverse into
the release subdirectory and look at any package dir, there is a md5.sum
file with timestamp corresponding to the same date as the packages. In
other words, I don't see anything wrong.
Yes, I know that.
The original message could have had the phrase
"at the top level" though I thought, obviously
incorrectly, that the explicit path to the
containing directory would be clear.
Click on this link to see the existing file:
or this one to see that it is missing:
This is the md5.sum file for setup.exe, setup.ini etc.
Note that the file mod times are "fresh" in those
sites that have it.
