PCA and Swift backends don't use etag (md5 checksum)?

Asked by Krzysztof Ślazyk on 2019-11-13

Do PCA and Swift backends make use of etag (md5 checksum) on upload? (I think they don't)

If not, wouldn't that be beneficial?

From OVH Public Cloud Archive reference for developers ( https://docs.ovh.com/gb/en/storage/pca/dev/#uploading-an-archive ):
"When uploading an archive to OVH Public Cloud Archive, it is very important to verify that both the local and remote copy of the data are indentical. This is a guarantee data received remotely is correct and that nobody has been able to alter its content."

Thanks for the catch! It may be a bit before we can act on it. Python 2 to 2/3 conversion left a bunch of bugs.

Can you help with this problem?
