Does anybody know if there is a way to get maven to sign every
artifact that get deployed?  As far as I know that does not exist yet.

I just went though the repo  and
seems there are many jars up with out a asc and hardly anybody signs
the pom.xml or the maven-metadata.xml files.

Seems the directory project does a really good job of signing all
thier artifacts.  Any directory project committer lurking about?  How
do you guys do that?  Do you have any automated scripts to help in
this department?
