    That is the hash tag. It is the md5 checksum of the package that Installer uses to check against the actual size in bits of the downloaded package to ensure that it hasn't been tainted in any way.

    I'm not sure if it is yet necessary, but it is strongly warned that you start implementing it because Installer will soon start making the hash tag mandatory.

    As far as how to figure it out, I'd recommend google. I simple use the utility built into Linux, or a application on the mac called, conveniently enough, md5. I've never looked for a windows solution, as I only build the repo on Windows. I package everything on Linux or OS X.
