Even if developers went through all those steps, nothing is planned in
the release manager so that one can upload the content of a gpg
signature when uploading a tarball.
So ppl would still have to upload/publish their gpg signature 'somewhere'...

So if you want things to happen in the publishing pipeline we use,
checkout, figure out how to add a field
to paste/upload a gpg signature, and get it commited..
