I just downloaded NeoOffice 2.1 Patch 0 for Intel, in English language, and installed it onto my MacBook Pro.
I looked for the MD5 checksum on the various Webpages through which I navigated to get to the download link. Perhaps it was there somewhere, but I didn't see it. I went back and looked again, but still without success.
Would someone please post the MD5 checksum for that version in response to this posting of mine? Or, if the MD5 checksum is somewhere on the Trinity Website, or on some other Website, would you please post the URL in reply?
If the MD5 checksums for all the versions of NeoOffice 2.1 are not on the Webpages where the user makes his or her selection of download mirror, may I respectfully suggest that that is the place to put them.

There are no checksums available for the NeoOffice downloads, although you can find the byte counts on the download page. Since it appeared that most people won't even bother to check the byte count, it's been decided that providing MD5 sums wasn't necessary.
IIRC, Mac OS X will verify a disk image before mounting it anyway, so if it mounts it should be OK.

Yes right now there are no checksums posted; the internal CRC of the disk image will automatically verify if the disk image was corrupted on download. If it did get corrupted you will probably see some error like "checksum invalid" or "codec overrun" when trying to mount the disk image in the Finder.
in all respect CRCs on the disk image only make sure it wasn't corrupted in transit. since this is all going over the network unencrypted, could we please get md5sums to verify the package has not been tampered with (served over https)?
