Oh! You meant the base URL, not the packages. Sorry.

I totally agree with your concerns, but Springer randomly changes the files without letting anyone know and, as you can see, there is no versioning either.

So, the only option to have packages in a reasonable installable state is too SKIP all checksums, otherwise building them randomly fails.

Please use md5sums or even better sha1sums! All download links point to insecure plain-text ftp or http resources. This is REALLY dangerous! Also, checksum generation now happens automatically:

Yeah, I sometimes think that Springer does not really want these classes to be usable...

In fact, I did not notice this. I remember to have searched for splncs, but I probably was too tired to take a careful looking at the find output.

You are right, the default ones are completely fine. I'm just curious about the naming convention of "splncs" file. Why it has the 03 at the end? (Then one needs to use it on "\bibliographystyle{splncs03}" as well, making things kinda difficult to guess).

Aren't the bibliography styles by default in LaTeX?

I now use BibLaTeX


and I have the feeling I was using default BibTeX styles before.

Or not. I also notice that this package already includes some BSTs:

latex-template-springer/pkg/latex-template-springer/usr/share/texmf-dist/bibtex/bst/springer$ ls
spbasic.bst splncs03.bst spmpsci.bst spphys.bst

Isn't this sufficient? Or should they be located somewhere else?
