Comment (by dd32):

 A job to create them for existing plugins is running, but will take quite
 some time to finish processing.

 It's building based on active_install count, so popular plugins will be
 built first.

 Currently building the checksums for the latest version, and any other
 versions in svn tags.

 As previously stated, the initial checksum files will only have the
 checksums for the latest files for each version available. If a plugin has
 released many variants of many versions from `/trunk/` we'll only be build
 the checksum for the latest versions latest variant of files.
 If a plugin has deleted the tags (as some do) then those are excluded too.

 If we want to go into more depth than that, then we can, but only after
 the initial files are generated. We'll need to figure out some way of
 parsing the 1.7m SVN revs and coming up with a game plan after that.
