MD5SUM filename

I have some tools and scripts downloading data from the GTDB repository. Recently one of them stopped working and the reason is that the file MD5SUM is now named MD5SUM.txt (

It’s an easy fix, but I would like to ask what should be the expected filename, so I don’t run into such issue again in the future. Note that the file itself is still named MD5SUM inside the MD5SUM.txt.


Apologies for the inconvenience. We will endeavor to keep the filenames consistent moving forward (i.e. MD5SUM.txt).
