We have now a number of questions about how to verify release binaries during the installation process. Perhaps there are enough to start using a tag for that.

What do you think about , or perhaps ? Open to better suggestions!

  • Is this about calculating a file hash?

    Yeah, or rather the process of verifying that they received the actual release binaries

I like since it pretty succinctly wraps up the intention of the tag. My only (slight) concern is that it may not be obvious to users asking how to hash a binary that this is the tag to use. But then, that's arguable for all tags, I suppose.

As long as the guidance is clear, it should be A Good Thing™
