[Bug 454307] Re: indices/md5sums.gz doesn't match repository

indices/md5sums.gz hasn't been generated at all since the middle of last
year, since the new publisher code dropped the section that runs dsync-
flist.  Digging around in #launchpad-dev logs for 2011-08-17:

11:43 <jtv> (Also note that dsync isn't currently used.)
11:48 <cjwatson> jtv: dsync> that's a shame
11:49 <cjwatson> jtv: what generates the md5sums index then?
11:49 <cjwatson> lp_archive at cocoplum:~$ ls -l /srv/launchpad.net/ubuntu-archive/ubuntu/indices/md5sums.gz
11:49 <cjwatson> -rw-r--r-- 1 lp_publish lp_publish 29926782 Aug  8 10:23 /srv/launchpad.net/ubuntu-archive/ubuntu/indices/md5sums.gz
11:49 <cjwatson> that looks unfortunate
11:49 <wgrant> cjwatson: It was generated by dsync.
11:49 <cjwatson> (I'm fairly sure that there exist mirroring tools which look at indices/md5sums.gz)
11:49 <wgrant> Which we should really running again.
11:49 <cjwatson> wgrant: yes, that's my point :)

Nowadays, the various Ubuntu-specific publishing hooks have been moved
out to a separate ubuntu-archive-publishing project, so I'm reassigning
this bug there since it seems likely to me that any attempt to resurrect
this would want to be done in those hooks rather than in the generic
Launchpad publisher code.  It's contingent on it being possible to run
this without an excessively painful performance hit.
