Several projects reference the httpd document entitled "Verifying
Apache HTTP Server Releases," which includes good commentary on why
it's important to download the signatures directly from Apache
hardware, and keys from the public keyrings.  You can find it here:
http://httpd.apache.org/dev/verification.html

I also found several other documents about making releases and signing
them, but these mostly addressed the process from a release manager's
perspective, and not an end users.
