To verify  the signature of Werner's original email, you can reverse the 
whitespace change that broke the signature.

(Save the email in raw format. Join the following two lines to be one. Then 
recheck the signature on the changed email.)

There is a long standing issue with Mailman breaking signature.
(I've developed a patch for a part of the problem, which after a few years got 
accepted into mailman 2.1.13, see
    - Mailman no longer folds long sub-part headers in multipart messages.
       In addition, Mailman no longer escapes From_ lines in the body of
       messages sent to regular list members, although MTA's may do it anyway.
       This is to avoid breaking signatures per Bug #265967.

Debian used to carry the patch for a long time.
