[DeleGate-En] Re: What's the .sign file for?

 |what's the delegate**.tar.sign file for? It is not recognized by the gpg
 |--verify *.sign, for instance.

It is a string representing "delegateX.Y.Z.tar MD5(delegateX.Y.Z.tar)"
signed with my RSA private-key.  You can get the verified plain text
using DeleGate (in which my public-key is embedded, after DeleGate/8.9.0)
like this:

  % delegated -Fverify delegate8.9.1.tar.sign
  delegate8.9.1.tar 913a71c69558ecdfaa587f142f191cda

Currenty, DeleGate just calles openssl for -Fverify.  Thus the above
verification is equivalent to the following command:
  % delegated -FdeMime -b *.sign | openssl rsautl -verify -pubin -inkey my-public-key.pem
where my-public-key.pem is available at
or dumped with delegated -Fpubkey.
