> It is important that the file being checked is also specified [1] on the gpg command line [2]
> If the second paramater is omitted, gpg can report success without actually checking the main artifact. This should not happen on correctly constructed ASF downloads, as we only provide detached sigs, but we should not be documenting bad practise.
> Note: the first example is correct, but the sample verification sequence omits the second parameter in:
> gpg --verify xmlbeans-bin-3.1.0.tgz.asc
> [1] https://www.apache.org/info/verification.html#specify_both
> [2] https://xmlbeans.apache.org/download/
