Contents of ETag returned from Spaces isn't always MD-5
https://developers.digitalocean.com/documentation/spaces/#list-bucket-contents says that the returned ETag contains a MD5 hash of the object. I’ve done some checking and whilst in most cases, the ETag contains the expected hex-encoded MD5 hash, about 20% of my objects have ETags in a different format - eg “6f60ac7c40a8e9c4408f89653c2243dc-2” or “4ee6bae1874dd445140acb8f8c4241f2-261”, which bears no resemblance to the expected MD5 hash. The returned ETag’s are consistent from one listing to another.
Can someone explain why these tags aren’t in the documented format and how to get List Bucket Contents to return the expected MD5 hash.
