Based on your feedback, I added a report form for corruption problems in 
my FAQ. You can find it at:


It provides a template body to send corruption problems to HEAnet. Please 
use this if you have problems with corrupted packages.

Colm, if you want to have the mails tweaked (for ease on filtering or to 
make it more precise), let me know what you want changed.

PS I'm still looking for a way to get the md5sum out of the RPM header, so 
that people can more easily report what md5sum they would have expected. 
Smart actually tells you what is gets and what it expected, but yum sadly 
does not. Maybe we should have an rpmforge-tools package with a tool that 
helps with this.

Kind regards,
