Summary0003275: Sign tarball releases with OpenPGP keys
DescriptionPlease sign tarball releases of Doomseeker, its plugins and libwadseeker with OpenPGP keys. This is used for cryptographic integrity verification.

For an additional benefit, this would prevent a malicious actor from replacing the downloads with malicious versions undetected without also possessing the private key to sign the releases.

Debian also makes a recommendation to sign tarballs in their Upstream Guide.

From a Debian maintainer's perspective, OpenPGP signatures are optionally used for quality control and maintenance with the uscan utility. Emphasis that this is completely optional to both the software and Debian maintainer. (Debian Policy Manual v4.1.0.0, section 4.11.)

Can this be a target for 1.2? I'd like to know if 0003483 should be related to this ticket.
