Or in other words: Those who handle the installation files and the
hashes do not pay attention to ubuntu-docs bugs. Hopefully we'll get in
touch with the right folks in the end.

Sorry to bother you with this stuff, Jay. After all, you did exactly as
the page says. ;-)

  Please include SHA256 or SHA512 hashes on Ubuntu Hashes page

Status in “ubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Could SHA256 and/or SHA512 hashes please be included on the Ubuntu
  Hashes page (currently located at
  https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes ?

  Currently, only MD5 is included, and this is the only https-protected
  official page I could find with the hashes. As can be seen in the
  Wikipedia page ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MD5 ) and the many
  citations of source material, MD5 is no longer recommended for this
  type of usage.

  Also - would it be possible to make the Ubuntu Hashes page more
  prominent for downloaders of the various Ubuntu software? It would be
  very helpful for checking the integrity of the ISOs against

  Thanks in advance.
