Any news about this patch? I have some pending tweaks to release.py and
don't want to conflict.

As I said about an earlier iteration: I think the main question is whether we
want to provide both sha1 and sha2 hashes for a transition period. I.e., do
we try for compatibility or force people to switch over to sha2.

I don't have a preference between sha256 and sha512.

Cheers,

Daniel
