Hi all,
when compiling firefox I usually download source code from here.
Choosen a version I download the source and check for archive integrity using the sha512sums file in that directory.

Since firefox 42.0b9 that file doesn't contain hash for source code anymore.
There is hash for firefox-42.0b9.bundle, not for firefox-42.0b9.source.tar.xz.

Do you know what's behind this decision? Is this wanted? Why?
