Now you know that I'm the only user that cares about signatures. :-)

I know that it's an "approximate security" thing anyway. But at 
least I can gain statements like: "Release n was signed by the 
same authority that signed release n-1, and release n-1 did not 
look manipulated to me after using it for some time."

So you don't have "master copies" of those files around? We could 
just compare checksums then:

e88dd79bdecf17c2670f5b7aa430cc0414acfde2  cmucl-20a-sparcv9-solaris8.tar.bz2
f9b3141f9298abe1f69cbb88938ff96a12445eb6  cmucl-20a-x86-linux.tar.bz2
4381905b212678f7953920abb49bf24e822d1ace  cmucl-src-20a.tar.bz2

Otherwise, if you say that you don't see any indication that 
those files have been manipulated, that would suffice as well.

Thank you!
