Periodically verify signatures in /dist

Give the recent bad signatures of some files in /dist that only came to light after a user emailed helpdesk, I wrote a bash script that I now run periodically on my dist mirror to verify the signatures. I think it's not a bad idea to run it on as well.

As first argument, it takes the path to /dist. It uses a local independent public keyring I update from time to time. That path must be customized in the script.

It currently excludes /dist/manual because that contains unsigned copies of the user manual.

Sounds like we should get this script into version control somewhere.

Weasel, do you know of a good place for it? (we have similar things in old svn)

Nice idea, but first we should probably split /dist from the rest of www, and then maybe do something so that only signed files can be added to dist in the first place..

We need a team that takes care of dist. That's not sysadmin.
