Just to provide some statistics about dpkg-sig usage, as I got curious
about it too:
In the archive, 525 out of 283283 .deb's are dpkg-sig'd (0.19%). There
are 8 distinct keys used for those 525 .deb's, seven of which correspond
I'm not going to interpret these numbers, as it's close to impossible to
do so objectively.
 Interested DD's can look into merkel:~jeroen/dpkg-sig how I got these
