We need the SFTP fetcher for one of our recipes. As it turned out when I
wrote the recipe, the fetcher failed to retrieve the sources because it
wanted me to specify checksums for them. However, the checksums _were_
specified in the recipe.

After examining the code for the fetcher, it turned out that the list of
fetchers that expect a checksum is hardcoded in the constructor of
FetchData in lib/bb/fetch2/, whereas verify_checksum() uses
ud.method.supports_checksum() and ud.method.recommends_checksum() to
determine if a checksum is needed. Needless to say, this of course
failed as the hardcoded values did not match reality.

This patch updates the list of hardcoded fetchers to include SFTP, but I
consider it more of a bandage, and someone with better Python skills
than mine should rewrite the constructor to not use a hardcoded list.


The following changes since commit efb8a460d2a977dbd481a0650fba8eb637c65bec:

  package.bbclass: Fix sources contents (2013-05-14 08:52:47 +0300)

are available in the git repository at:
