Default How about GPG/PGP signing the downloads?

Hi,
how about signing by gpg signature nvidia-xxxx.run.sign the downloads (of drivers for example)? It is easy to do and it is a standard in linux world actually, so why not?

Thanx
Rafal

I'd prefer an MD5 hash, but really, it's a non-issue for me.

The only thing standard in linux is the kernel and even that have a difficult time being a standard. Like the first replier implied, GPG is hardly a linux standard. ATI for instance have an idea that rpm is a standard aswell in linux.

The executable NVidia Package, already includes some type of md5sum check...
But having a additional for the whole package would be nice, indeed!
