Hey Landry,
a GPG key is something very sensible to keep secure. It cannot just be
put on a release server that automatically signs the files. Or if so it
needs to be super secured against any attacks.

On the other hand it is super simple for the xfce developers to sign
their tarballs. You can use my gpgit script or just sign the files on
your own:
gpg --armor --detach-sign xfcetool-1.0.0.tar.xz

I am sorry, but all I can do is to kindly ask all maintainers to take
the topic GPG signing serious. I already wrote a super simple script
along with a dead simple gpg quick start documentation:

I hope all developers can take those 5 minutes to generate a key and
sign their sources.
