Just wondering whether anyone here understands the cause of the "BADSIG"

Yes, I used to get this a lot with ftp.ro.debian.org. I switched to
using ftp.at.debian.org and got rid of this.
Interesting ... although I'm reporting this in respect of security.d.o
I'm fairly sure I've also seen it with ftp.de.debian.org ... I suppose
main repository 'Release' files will usually only change when there's
been a point release, and mostly it's the security.d.o files that will
be changing. I'll pay attention on the next point release.
P.S. Recently I ran apt-spy. It turned out ftp.at.debian.org is the best
mirror for me. ftp.ro.debian.org didn't even make the top 5.
Good tip - I'll try that - our company's firewall is in Germany, but
your experience shows I should check. Thanks.
