Thanks a lot Martín!.

Perfect the answer!, then... we understand that the contents manifest file
that is the result of build (ussualy .toc, that is used to update method,
olpc-update) will also be affected by this process, is this right?.
Because we no found place to verify this assertion in some documentation,
only the specification of contents manifest, but found nothing about it,
only the following lines that do not answer to our question:

A contents manifest is just a convenience object for bundling a number of
> related directory objects; it should not be directly signed. Instead, the
> root directory object in the contents manifest should be the element which
> receives a signature.


Thanks again!
