If that were entirely true then where does the, in this case, downloaded file ledgersmb-1.5.21.tar.gz.asc from? I'd always thought that resulted from the GitHub pgpsigurlmangle entry, which does point to the 'releases'. And if the final URL is pointed to the 'releases' also, it fails because it can't find the *.asc file as it's looking for the wrong file name and ends up not downloading anything. That's why it confused me; the form of watch I ended up using at least downloaded files but still failed due to the apparently bad downloaded archive.

I'm inclined to agree and will look at using that site instead.
