Summary0006200: No link to SHA256SUM.gpg on download page
DescriptionPlease add an html anchor link to the 'SHA256SUM.gpg' file somewhere on the downloads page on the Kali Linux website.

This download page:

 * https://www.kali.org/downloads/

Has no link anywhere to the 'SHA256SUM.gpg' file:

 * https://cdimage.kali.org/kali-2020.1/SHA256SUMS.gpg

In fact, it doesn't even have a link to the equally necessary 'SHA256SUM' file:

 * https://cdimage.kali.org/kali-2020.1/SHA256SUMS

There appears to only be a link on that page to the SHA256SUM file for the weekly builds.

In fact, I recommend adding this in multiple places on the page to make it easy to find:

 1. For every row in the table, make the existing SHA256SUM value the text body of an anchor link to the SHA256SUM
 2. On a newline under every SHA256SUM link in [1], add an anchor link with the body "SHA256SUM.gpg" linking to https://cdimage.kali.org/kali-<release>/SHA256SUMS.gpg
 3. At the bottom in the "https://cdimage.kali.org/kali-2020.1/SHA256SUMS.gpg", turn the currently-bold text for "SHA256SUM" and "SHA256SUM.gpg" into anchor links that link to the corresponding files for the current release

Please update the Kali Linux downloads page to have at least one clear link to the SHA256SUM files and SHA256SUM.gpg files.
