 Replying to [comment:7 dd32]:

 > That is what I outlined in Comment:2 above, and as a result, the POC
 although it's in the ZIP generation class, *does not link checksums to a
 ZIP file* - they may by coincidence match, but you cannot assume that
 plugin.2.0.zip will have checksums in the 2.0 file (It might be in 2.0.1
 instead, because the ZIP is named incorrectly).

 Yes, that makes sense. Are there any plans to change the way ZIPs are
 named? There's no direct need, afaict, but having different ways of naming
 versions is bound to cause confusion at some point.

 > If you wish, I can add that to the regular generation & provide you
 commit to it to add

 Yes, please.

 > We won't be investigating anything regarding this at this time.

 Yes, thought so already, and I don't think that's necessary. If we hit any
 major issues later down the road, we can always re-assess.
