Hi everybody,

As you might discover the current state of the RepoForge is very
unhappy. Maybe the project is at the end. We do not have updates for
about six months notwithstanding we do have quite a lot of commits
within the repository on GitHub.

We as developers/commiters do not have access to RepoForge build stack
and the signing key. Dag has no time, we all understand this, but the
community is in a bad need of updates. Especially the security ones.
Because of this situation I have prepared update repository to handle
the updates outside the RepoForge scope. Packages are taken from
RepoForge GitHub repository and signed with my personal key. I'm
thinking about creating a new key for RepoForge project and resigning in
the future.

I know that this is unhappy situation and bad solution. But right now
there's no better one and take it as a step-in, a temporary solution.

Looking forward to hearing  from you all soon,
