I've incorporated these comments into a new draft at http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-bryan-metalink-02 There are some issues I would like help from people: - Inclusion of digital signatures other than PGP. - Ability to specify if a file is in one or multiple languages. - Ability to specify if a file is for one or more operating systems.
