It is possible to programmatically download the latest version of craft. But is it also possible to get this file's md5 sum directly from the server?
I'm thinking about something like this:
I am asking this because I'm currently writing a Salt formula to install Craft. I intend to use salt.states.files.managed, which is capable of downloading a file only if it has a different md5 sum than an already downloaded version of the file.
