Summary16491: Download page no longer provides file checksum
DescriptionThe old download page at https://www.limesurvey.org/stable-release provided several file formats along checksum hashes.

The multiple formats are still available (although hidden, it's documented on https://manual.limesurvey.org/Installation_-_LimeSurvey_CE#Download_the_LimeSurvey_package). However, the hashes are gone.

Having a checksum with the url allows to fully configure the development pipeline with just those two parameters, the hash ensuring that the same file is used (for instance, now an old url would download the html of the new download page, but the hash would reject it).

The download webpage providing the sha256 was handy, since it allowed to verify the download from upstream, and did not require an initial download just to validate the download-to-be.
Steps To ReproduceGo to https://community.limesurvey.org/downloads/ and look for the hash
