We don't have any. But I've provided a script that I've just used for a 
test 4.1.3 build. It will find packages in a build tree (after the build 
has completed), arrange them in the appropriate directories, compute the 
hashes and sign.

It's currently located here:

It only works on Linux-64 but it is trivial to extend it to cover 
Linux-32, probably Mac OS X and maybe also Windows (provided one has a 
Bash environment).

Uploads to SourceForge are trivial (just a rsync); but anyway they 
happen after the tree has already been arranged properly, so they are 
unrelated to arranging the tree.

We are signing. We always did. Just, we do it in a way that Windows 
doesn't like. The "signed installers" discussion comes from this 
incompatibility. But, security-wise, we are already providing a detached 
GPG (or PGP) signature for all files. See
