Bug#445865: debian-installer: Does not include any gnupg checking on CDROMs or DVDs

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20070308
Severity: wishlist

Please add Release.gpg files to the official releases on CDROMs and
DVDs, and anything else needed for aptitude to verify the authenticity
of the disks.

I just went through a lot of trouble trying to get aptitude to quit
warning me that all of the packages from the official DVDs were
untrusted.  Somebody finally pointed out that the CDs and DVDs don't
include the Release.gpg files, so they can't be listed as trusted.  I
tried to download the Release.gpg files from the web later, but I could
only find them for version 4.0r1 instead of the 4.0 DVD that I have.
That seems to mean that the user can never count on being able to verify
their disks later.
