You probably need to have also downloade the ant-current-bin.zip before 
you check the ant-current-bin.zip.asc

My public key has been signed by Stefan Bodewig. I do not know what is a 
trusted signature in the sense of pgp.

>I am using PGP 6.5.8 which I downloaded from MIT tonight specifically to do this check,
especially because the Apache Ant website suggested so strongly that I use the pgp check not
just md5. So I did and the Appache site turned up with these problems.
