makepkg fails if upper case md5 strings are used.

makepkg fails if upper case md5 strings are used. For example

9e107d9d372bb6826bd81d3542a419d6

and

9E107D9D372BB6826BD81D3542A419D6

for makepkg are not the same thing. Is it a feature or a bug?

Well, md5sum outputs them in lowercase so I'd say a feature.  Where are you getting md5sums in capitals from?  The answer may turn it into a bug...

Pretty easily fixed with tr '[:upper:]' '[:lower:]' if it is a bug.

Yes; I know how to solve it. I am used to make my md5 strings with the command md5. Previous version of makepkg was working. This is why I want to know if it is a bug or not.

File a bug report if you think it is and provide the reason for the need of uppercase md5sums.  Then all the pacman developers will see it.
