Well, it's an optional flag. Typically, the RM tests the release locally
before posting it anywhere. Yet, I find signing the tarball at that initial
stage is a good way to ensure that the tarball doesn't change once testing
starts. The MD5 and sha1 sums aren't saved to a file, so there's no record of
them except for being in the output of dist.sh. With the .asc file present,
the RM can easily check the validity of the just created tarball. -- justin
