I really love to hear that!

No idea if my helpers are ready to do that, right now.
If not, would you mind to get a Starship account?
You can do everything you like from there.

On the other hand, the whole Stackless stuff is hosted

What is the point of providing md5 sums?
Is python.org not treated as a trustable source?
