What about this: apt downloads both Release/Release.gpg and InRelease.
If InRelease is old then it should use Release/Release.gpg and warn
the user that their mirror is buggy and that they should contact the
mirror operator. Then on the Debian website we should have a way for
users to find out how to contact their mirror operator.
What was the reason for adding InRelease anyway?
