Thanks to Symmetry and the Foundation for this.

This is a big deal. I hope there will be announcements posted and promoted after the hires are made. From a marketing perspective, it is initiatives like this that give others the confidence to invest in the language.

Why not SHA-256?

I think the majority opinion is that sha1 is fine for non-security purposes like monitoring files for changes to obviate superfluous work in a build system; for which DUB seemingly would use the sha1 checksums. I have (had) a script that would backup files, and I'd use sha1 to detect changes instead of sha256 because the latter's storage and computational requirements were not insignificant compared to the former. This is just my perspective, however. I could be talking nonsense.

As an alternative to use SHA-1 hashing. There's the option to have a daemon running the background listing on filesystem events.

BTW, is timestamps vs SHA-1 hashing really the most pressing issue with Dub?

We think that not recompiling certain modules which have not changed will improve our build times.
And the task proposed is actually something that can go in without too much struggle.
Whereas deeper issues in dub likely take much longer.

Not a big fan of using hashes, since collisions do arise when you scale things up, but there are fast noncryptographic hashes. Some are like 10-500x faster than SHA1:
