.Note
The hashes for license files are used to detect a license change when a
-package version is bumped. For a package with multiple versions (like Qt5),
+package version is bumped. The hashes are checked during the make legal-info
+target run. For a package with multiple versions (like Qt5),
create the hash file in a subdirectory +<packageversion>+ of that package
(see also xref:patch-apply-order[]).
