    All .metalinks at Metalink @ Packages Resources now contain chunk checksums. For supporting clients (currently only aria2), this allows downloads to be repaired if any errors are encountered.

    A few projects have a /collections directory which will have a .metalink for all files - Debian has 21 i386 ISOs, and the collection .metalink should add all of those files to your transfer queue.

    If anyone has any problem with these, let us know (besides Fedora, Edubuntu, & Kubuntu which currently have problems & are being fixed).
