   Package name: md5deep
        Version: 1.13
Upstream Author: Jesse Kornblum
            URL: http://md5deep.sourceforge.net/
        License: Public domain and others
    Description: Recursing file hash calculator
This utility is similar to the famous md5sum, but has the ability to
recurse into subdirectories when calculating hashes for many files. It
is not limited to the MD5 algorithm, but can also calculate SHA1,
SHA256, Tiger and Whirpool hashes.

I am not so sure about the license, because some sources are left in
the public domain, some others are licensed with the GPL, some others
don't specify any license. I'll ask competent mailing lists what to do.

Giovanni.

  You mean like find . [options] -exec md5sum \{} \; > sums ?

  Or like md5sums **/* (if using zsh) ?

  Is there a point in packaging such trivial things ?

Could this not go into moreutils?

It seems a shame to create a new package for something that could be
trivially implemented in one line of shell.

Many Debian developers said me it isn't an interesting package. It's
true, it can be replaced with one line of shell!
