I know what the issue is because I've already fixed it for the Packages file 
but not yet for the sources file. This is due to the design of apt-secure. It 
expects the signature for Sources and Packages to be present despite the fact 
that the files themselves are not present, only their compressed versions.

Interestingly, apt-ftparchive doesn't say anything about this mismatch.

Note that the package repository is in fact backed by a huge git repository. 
I've just pushed the fixed Release(.gpg) files and apt-get source appears to 
work fine.
