Greetings,

I reused a simple "hello" recipe and added a non-matching checksum to it:

...
SRC_URI = "file://helloworld.c"
SRC_URI[md5sum] = "34f0efd76b4f18888888888833cdd129"
...

The rest of the recipe comes from
https://git.openembedded.org/openembedded-core/tree/meta-skeleton/recipes-skeleton/hello-single.

Why doesn't Bitbake stop, reporting that the checksum doesn't match the
source file?
Anyway, why does the recipe build without a checksum? Shouldn't
checksums be mandatory?
Checksums are for files that are fetched via http:// and friends, not
local files.
