In order to support improved automation and deployment of Looker, would you please consider formatting the md5sum to be the official format, (it is only missing one space and then the file name). this would allow a script to verify it as follows md5sum --check looker-latest.jar.md5

The md5sum file as it comes now, generates an error

$ cat looker-latest.jar.md5 a8d866bd71971076646e0c8ca68ba6aa $ md5sum --check looker-latest.jar.md5
md5sum: looker-latest.jar.md5: no properly formatted MD5 checksum lines found

The md5sum file as would be supported by md5sum --check looker-latest.jar.md5

$ cat looker-latest.jar.md5 a8d866bd71971076646e0c8ca68ba6aa **looker-latest.jar**

$ md5sum --check looker-latest.jar.md5 looker-latest.jar: OK

suggestion:
Generate md5sum as follows
md5sum looker.jar > looker-latest.md5

would generate a file with one line as follows
a8d866bd71971076646e0c8ca68ba6aa looker.jar
