Subject Re: Maven artifact GPG signing
Date Thu, 30 May 2019 17:31:55 GMT
Hi Andy,

Thanks for bringing this up and looking into the mechanics of how to
get it working. I am a +1 for signing our maven artifacts.

Thanks,
Kevin

GPG. Currently we sign the full build (i.e. nifi-x.y.z-source-release.tar.gz) with the GPG
key of the release manager, and the corresponding public key is available in our KEYS file,
hosted by Apache. My proposal is that we complement this by signing the individual Maven modules
as well, so that consuming projects (ourselves included) can verify that the code they are
running was what was published. I’ve included a few links below [1][2][3][4][5][6][7] that
hopefully answer preliminary questions about the process, but I am happy to have further discussion
here as well.
