 To distribute archives of your own, you need a key pair generated like so:
+cd ~/.ssh
 openssl genrsa -des3 -out privkey.pem 2048
 openssl rsa -in privkey.pem -pubout -out pubkey.pem

 If you have lots of archives to sign, this can be done via a for loop in your shell. Here I use bash:
-for i in *tbz2; do openssl dgst -ripemd160 -sign ~/.ssh/privkey.pem.bare -out $i.rmd160 $i; done
+cd /archive/repository
+for i in */*/*/*tbz2; do openssl dgst -ripemd160 -sign ~/.ssh/privkey.pem.bare -out $i.rmd160 $i; done
 Note that this saves the signatures along side the archives, by simply using `.rmd160` as a suffix. This is what MacPorts presently expects.

 Your archives are now signed and MacPorts should be configured to recognize your signature. Try it out!

+As you build archives, you'll eventually come across an instance where you're upgrading an older version. Keeping these outdated archives around might be less than ideal. We can wipe them out by looping through the repository checking the versions against what's current.
