Checksum...

The type of folks who have discovered and are considering SuperDuper! may be more knowledgeable than you think, but yes, not everyone would appreciate the value of a checksum. The fact that Apple supplies a SHA-1 digest for public downloads indicates they appreciate it, so maybe we should too. At least it appeals to me, as someone who has spent too many years using Winders, where the security vendors scare us into a spyware/malware mindset. Regarding the presentation of the info, here is a cut-and-paste example from an Apple update. Perhaps you could include the same references/links for the "About..." and "How to Verify..." to satisfy the educational and instructional requirements:

Security Update 2007-005 v1.1 (Universal) SHA1 Digest:
