I'm traveling, and busy, for work this week so I haven't had a chance to
look at making those changes. Earliest I can get to it is this weekend. If
someone else wants to give it a shot the CI release build script is here:

It could be helpful for the release managers to have the hashes generated
automatically as part of the CI build (less manual work is good). If
someone wants to give that a try the script above is where it would go :-)
