Yeah, when testing the installer I always see that annoying "unknown
issuer" warning.  Thus it is probably a good idea to silence this
warning by signing the installer.  I need to see how to integrate this
into my workflow.

I also need to decide whether to use my smartcard based release signing
key but that unfortunately means that a broken smartcard will be quite
expense.  Given that it is cheap to get a faked code signing key, it
might be okay to use a standard on disk key.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
