We didn't change the configuration, but apparently that's done at (which also offers a mirror of cvs releases) - but
that's different than

I checked mime.types from several distros (Gentoo, Debian, Fedora) and
I see no mime type associated with the .sig extension. So by default
most servers do not associate this content-type with .sig's.

But I guess that doesn't hurt.
