Description

It would be a nice idea to have an automated script that could download and check the integrity of files uploaded to the cloud services in a periodic manner, and warn someone in case the files are corrupted. It could be done using code suggested by isis on #14744. Also, this could be used in #16994, in case we decide to do it.

Adding idea related to #16716:

"so if we're sending a download link from $mirror, we should make sure we've checked the integrity of that file before serving it to user.

one way to do it, is to check the sig right before sending it to user

another way is to make sure we check all of the mirrors periodically and randomly

and once we're about to send a link from an specific mirror, we need to check if it's been already checked in the past (eg: hour)"
