I normally put the MD5 information in a separate file in the same 
repository.  Something like:

Parent Directory	 	 -
pytables-2.0.4.md5	04-Jul-2008 14:23 	249
pytables-2.0.4.tar.gz	04-Jul-2008 14:22 	3.3M
pytablesmanual-2.0.4-html.tar.gz	04-Jul-2008 14:22 	1.7M
pytablesmanual-2.0.4.pdf	04-Jul-2008 15:27 	1.2M
tables-2.0.4.tar.gz	04-Jul-2008 14:22 	3.3M
tables-2.0.4.win32-py2.4.exe	04-Jul-2008 14:22 	1.0M
tables-2.0.4.win32-py2.5.exe	04-Jul-2008 14:22 	1.0M

where the MD5 hashes are in pytables-2.0.4.md5.  The MD5 signatures can 
be computed easily by using the 'cfv' utility:

cfv -C -t md5 -f pytables-$VERSION.md5 *
