There is no indication on the website or wiki that builds are signed
with gpg.  I did notice .asc file on the ftp. [1] Eventually I found
the keys on the ftp also. [2]  But to my dismay not only was the key
using 1024 DSA it was also expired.  It would be nice if the download
pages made mention of a gpg sig, along with updating the key to at least
2048 bit RSA

Sorry if this is the wrong place to put this, but I was unable to
register on the forums and freenode hidden services are offline.
