Of the two up-to-date mirrors with 7.6 I can find:
neither has a "RELEASE_KEY.asc" file.

There's:  DJM-GPG-KEY.asc

For the Fastly case, I've confirmed that this is not a stale cached
index issue and that putting in RELEASE_KEY.asc as a filename yields a

The file "DJM-GPG-KEY.asc" contains the PGP key 0xCE8ECB0386FF9C48 which
was revoked in 2013.  The signature I do see on the release was made
with PGP key 0xD3E5F56B6D920D30, which was created the same day.

I have a trust-path to the key 0xD3E5F56B6D920D30 so I'm good, but
something seems to have gone askew here.
