+@cindex implicit signature archivation
+@cindex signature files, archivation
+ Usually signature files (i.e. the ones ending with @samp{.sig}) should
+be located in the same directory as the files they belong to. To
+enforce this rule, @command{wydawca} implements
+@dfn{implicit signature archivation} facility. It works as
+follows. When archivation of @var{file} is requested by
+@code{archive: @var{file}} statement in the directive
+file (@pxref{FTP Upload Directive File - v1.1, Standalone directives,,, Information For Maintainers of GNU Software}),
+@command{wydawca} also checks if the file named @file{@var{file}.sig}
+exists. If so, it is archived along with @file{@var{file}}.
+@kwindex archive-signatures
+ If implicit signature archivation is not needed, use
+the @code{archive-signatures} statement to disable it, e.g.:
