sorry, I do not understand these tools.
Is  a GPG signature added to the code in a script, or does the script
need to be packaged in some special container, which is signed?
If it is the first, how does it prevent anyone to copy and use in
their own modified script?
If it is the latter than it is a considerable extra burden for
publishing a recipe script. I really just want to upload updated
recipe scripts, without having to bother about packages.
I try even to avoid zipping things if possible.
