Correction, it seems like a better course of action would be:

debian-cd scripts should first try InRelease file, and if it is not found on the 
$mirror, then fallback to Release{.gpg}.

<Ganneff> flightplan: it should  - not solely rely on Release{.gpg} but first try 
InRelease. Only if that isnt there, fallback (for some time)
<flightplan> Ganneff: Ook. Will InRelease.gpg be there, when Release{.gpg} are 
<Ganneff> no .gpg
<Ganneff> just InRelease
<Ganneff> .gpg is a detached sig, THE thing that inrelease doesnt have.
<Ganneff> INline sig
