[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify parted-3.6.tar.xz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
or that public key has expired, try the following commands to update
or refresh it, and then rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

  gpg --locate-external-key

  gpg --recv-keys 117E8C168EFE3A7F

  wget -q -O- '' | gpg --import -

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Autoconf 2.71
  Automake 1.16.5
