Bug ID: 744771
Summary: Check download size and md5
Assignee: gstreamer-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

GNOME version: ---
Fetching packages can sometimes fail, resulting in wrong download/size/...
Furthermore we should ensure what we download is *really* what we want (i.e.
not have people tamper downloads).
A simple way forward to fix that would be to store in each tarball-based
* the expected size
* the MD5 for small packages (limit to be determined)
At the fetch step we could then:
* Check if file if present, if not download it
* Check if filesize is the expected one, if not remove and retry download once
(and then fail if it's really wrong)
* Check if the MD5 is the expected one (for those where it's specified)
