Hey there,

just coming back to the whole thing of ... signing archives... I
eventually managed to get my own personal archive signed, and I still
think hoary-backports on the old server should be signed (along with

I'm willing to help implement this, and below is the script I managed to
use to get my archive working as a signed archive

Ok, so it's not pretty, but, it works, and I havent worked out how to
get apt-ftparchive working properly yet to auto-generate everything, if
anyone wants to let me know, feel free.

So what do you people think - should this be implemented?
