Resource hashes

Description (last modified by dread) (diff)

New field for resources - hash of the resource file.

  • CKAN itself will not calculate the hash value - user just pastes it in.
  • Display text field in resource table.
  • Requires migration script.

Questions for the field's value:

  1. Which hash to use? Restrict to python hashlib and other major hash libraries.
  1. Should we use merkle trees?

Thanks to Julien D'Assanges for the suggestion.
