Due to some infrastructure problems, I couldn't offer GPG verification
details for the distribution archive in my earlier announcement.

Please find them below.

Obtaining groff

This release candidate is available from

Here are the compressed sources and a GPG detached signature[*].

Here are the SHA-1 and SHA-256 checksums.

4491287b7e17f5d886fafb5613deab0d978c47e3  groff-1.23.0.rc2.tar.gz
+bCEV52n4Z26KdgIVwsyS9tIWeJ7bP+c++YsDh/mOFU=  groff-1.23.0.rc2.tar.gz

The SHA-256 checksum is encoded in Base64 instead of the hexadecimal
form that most checksum tools default to.  The mechanism follows.

sha256sum < groff-1.23.0.rc2.tar.gz | cut -f1 -d\  | xxd -r -p | base64

Thanks to Bertrand Garrigues for his assistance in preparing this RC.

[*] 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 archive.  Then, verify the archive.

      gpg --verify groff-1.23.0.rc2.tar.gz{.sig,}

    If that command fails because you don't have the required public
    key, you can import it.

      gpg --keyserver --recv-keys \

    Re-run the 'gpg --verify' command subsequently.
