Description

Extract from email from Joonas Kylmälä <> on mailing list:

yeah, the images for RC1 has been signed with GNUtoo's key and for the
0003 release with Wolfgang's key, so since there is signature checking
using rc1 zip on 0003 recovery won't work and vice versa.

This hit me when trying to replace my Replicant 6.0 with Replicant 6.0 0004 RC1 and
then (when that didn't work) trying to reinstall Replicant 6.0.

If that will be the case for the release, the recovery image should be renamed from
recovery-espressowifi.img to recovery-6.0-0004-rc1-espressowifi.img so it is clear
it is different from the original, and both can be kept in the same directory if required.

Also, the release notes should explain the issue and at least summarize how to go back
to the earlier version by reinstalling the earlier recovery.
