I'd say in general that it is _not_ a good idea to
let the cvs2changelog script overwrite old entries.
The better changelogs I know are at least controlled manually.

Yes I haven't thought of that the tag got moved, too.
Also I believed that your packaging script might be actively
selecting the needed source, not just packaging everything. :)
Anyway I've removed the subdirectories of src.nonGPL from the branch now.

Do you want to do this (for exercise)?
It is easy enough:
If you have a fully checked out branch, just
use something like
cvs remove -f

www.gnupg.org has good documentation for gnupg.
Install an uptodate version of gpg.
Create a key if you don't have one:
(1024 bit is sufficient.)
Sign a file with a detached signature
gpg --detach-sign grass-5.0.3rc4_src.tar.gz
( Later and repeately:
Get the public key part signed by people to build
the web of trust. :) )
