If I'm not mistaken, the requirement for SHA-512 checksums only exists for the source distribution, not the binaries. At least this is what I
derive from Hervés implementation in Apache Parent 21. However, the
plugin configuration only kicks in, if the source release artifact name
ends with "-source-release.[zip|tar*]" From what I see in the latest
votes, Apache Commons uses another naming scheme (I do, too). Shall we
adapt?


What do you mean? Adapt our artifact naming scheme or adapt what Apache
Parent 21 does? Since SHA-512 checksums are required now,

sha-256 is fine too.

we need to find a
way to implement this :-) I'm not sure what's the best way for that right
now. What do others think?

IIUC, Rob has implemented it in the release plugin.
For example, the "Commons RNG" release has the required checksums:
  http://commons.apache.org/proper/commons-rng/download_rng.cgi
