Let's save committers' fingers:

gpg -ba subversion-1.3.0-rc4.tar.bz2

I know I'm more likely to remember a single syllable 'ba', than the long
options - and it's obvious which one I'd rather type.

.asc, not .sig

Command is wrong. Should be:

bzip2 -dc subversion-1.3.0-rc4.tar.bz2 \
| gzip -9nc > subversion-1.3.0-rc4.tar.gz

Suggest verifying this by verifying the RM's signature, or by md5sum.
