  Description     : Common digest package used across the container ecosystem

Package digest provides a generalized type to opaquely represent message
digests and their operations within the registry. The Digest type is
designed to serve as a flexible identifier in a content-addressable
system.  More importantly, it provides tools and wrappers to work with
hash.Hash-based digests with little effort. 

- why is this package useful/relevant?

It is a dependency of Docker from version v17.06.0.

- how do you plan to maintain it?

I plan to maintain it within the golang packaging team.
