Different kinds of signing. The releases and the updates will be signed as
ASF requires with an external .asc file. But the nbms in the release aren't
currently jar signed (ie. internal signature) so will show as unsigned with
a warning in the IDE. You can see this if you uninstall and reinstall
modules in the IDE. This is what we need to sort out.

And yes, you're not the only one to have been confused by this distinction!

Best wishes,
