It seems fairly clear the ISOs have leaked, that they are genuine.

The isos have to get distributed to mirrors before the official release

It's not like it is a crime or license violation.

I don't mind early discussion of leaked ISO's - but I think they should
go on the test list, where people using recent rawhide versions of both
the installer and the packages are more likely to see it.

I note that Jim did NOT say the signatures were verified to be official
signatures and not some random party's hack.

The official site is still blocked.

There is no reason to "ass-u-me" that Jim has a legitimate package
given the information he provided. So he may be in the "poor bastard"
camp at the moment with a hacked copy. We've no way of knowing given
his provided information.
