I'll take a look at it.

At this point though, it hasn't been "released" officially and still in beta though, right?

pulledpork does this.. it can be found here => http://code.google.com/p/pulledpork

I just finished modifying it so that no matter the format of the md5 file it will only grab the hash value out of it.. so should be good to go with that one now.

Does anyone have a shell script that downloads the md5 and compares it to the last one before running oinkmaster.pl that they want to share?

I'm in the "downloading once a day" camp, and I've noticed that this has been failing quite often lately.

actually there is an md5 file, and i was thinkin' about asking why VRT
changed its format without alerting users before.
personally, i download daily that md5 file and compare to the latest md5
i've got: if they don't match it means that there is something new.

but we're a bit OT here :)
