I don't see the benefit of checksums without signatures. We already kind of have
transmission integrity by IP for release downloads or by git. We really need
https, but PGP is probably controversial enough to be discussed. Maybe we have
some time for that at the hackathon, but that would exclude people who cannot

Thus, start flaming your highly valued opinions about PGP-signing releases to
