After building the `sqlite3.c` file, you can check 320 -that is authentic by comparing the hash. This does not ensure that the 320 +that it is authentic by comparing the hash. This does not ensure that the 321 321 test scripts are unaltered, but it does validate the deliverable part of 322 -the code and only involves computing and comparing a single hash. 322 +the code and the verification process only involves computing and 323 +comparing a single hash. 323 324 324 325 For versions other than an official release, or if you are building the 325 326 `sqlite3.c` amalgamation using non-standard build options, the verification 326 327 process is a little more involved. The `manifest` file at the root directory 327 -of the source tree ([example](https://sqlite.org/src/artifact/bd49a8271d650fa8)) 328 +of the source tree 328 329 contains either a SHA3-256 hash (for newer files) or a SHA1 hash (for 329 330 older files) for every source file in the repository. You can write a script 330 331 to extracts hashes from `manifest` and verifies the hashes against the 331 332 corresponding files in the source tree. The SHA3-256 hash of the `manifest` 332 333 file itself is the official name of the version of the source tree that you 333 334 have. The `manifest.uuid` file should contain the SHA3-256 hash of the 334 335 `manifest` file. If all of the above hash comparisons are correct, then 335 336 you can be confident that your source tree is authentic and unadulterated. 336 337 338 +The format of the `manifest` file should be mostly self-explanatory, but 339 +if you want details, they are available 340 +[here](https://fossil-scm.org/fossil/doc/trunk/www/fileformat.wiki#manifest). 341 + 337 342 ## Contacts 338 343 339 -The main SQLite webpage is [http://www.sqlite.org/](http://www.sqlite.org/) 344 +The main SQLite website is [http://www.sqlite.org/](http://www.sqlite.org/) 340 345 with geographically distributed backups at 341 346 [http://www2.sqlite.org/](http://www2.sqlite.org) and 342 347 [http://www3.sqlite.org/](http://www3.sqlite.org).
