Hi Enrico,

I think you may be mistaking me for a staff member of Kolab Systems; I'm just 
a regular member of the project's open-source community like you are. ;-)

I agree with what you wrote, but I cannot do anything about it (other than 
help out in the areas where my progress is not dependent on somebody at Kolab 
Systems flicking a switch).

Regarding the workaround for the signing-key issue: fortunately, it's not as 
problematic as you think. If you change the repository link to https://, your 
package manager validates the server's host certificate and downloads all 
packages over an encrypted connection - which should provide roughly the same 
level of integrity guarantees. Still, I agree that this issue should be fixed 
rather today than tomorrow.

Best regards,
