  If that were entirely true then where does the, in this case, downloaded file ledgersmb-1.5.21.tar.gz.asc from? I'd always thought that resulted from the GitHub pgpsigurlmangle entry[1], which does point to the 'releases'. And if the final URL is pointed to the 'releases' also, it fails because it can't find the *.asc file as it's looking for the wrong file name and ends up not downloading anything.  That's why it confused me; the form of watch I ended up using at least downloaded files but still failed due to the apparently bad downloaded archive.

  I'm inclined to agree and will look at using that site instead.
