[Bug 1349715] Re: Ubuntu hashes for 14.04.1 missing on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes



Thank you for the response.  I did subsequently find and use that,
although it is not an HTTPS delivered resource.  I also note the
availability of OpenPGP-signed hashes, although I think that is beyond
the capability of many if not the majority of "mainstream" Ubuntu users,
and I don't have a PGP implementation installed on the Windows computer
I'm using at the moment.

I should have been more restrained, perhaps, in adding my prior comment
to this issue.  However, with the burgeoning security concerns these
days also among the general population, I think it is helpful to
encourage and support their being as proactive as possible.  In other
words, we *want* people checking against verified trusted hashes,
delivered via HTTPS where the user is not yet comfortable with OpenPGP
and tools that implement it.

I hope I was and am not annoying here nor overly pedantic, especially
inasmuch as I am a new contributor to the conversation, here.  Again,
perhaps I should have waited longer and investigated further, first,
and/or refrained altogether from commenting.
