           Summary: Check download size and md5

     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)
