Tarball signatures

Since 2024-Feb-15 the released tarballs are no more signed. Is it by accident or on purpose?

Looks like the cdn is not up-to-date yet?

OK, that explains, but does not answer WHY signatures are removed

Friendly ping.

What is the stance of the project/maintainer on this topic?

Especially in the light of the recent xz backdoor signed tarballs or commits are at least one item in the chain of trust. Without signed tarballs anyone in control of downloads.tryton.org could submit malicious content, while with signed tarballs additionally the key of the release manager would have to be compromised.
