Will dinstall sign any package that has already has a valid signature,
in the *.changes and *.dsc file?

If so, how can you be sure that my key in the debian public key ring
really is my key?

(not trying to argue your point, just pointing out that weaknesses
still do exist).

Suggestion: have up to two signatures per package, one from the
uploader[1] (which can be verified by the paranoid who have some chain of
trust already established), and one from dinstall.


[1] by this I mean the same person who signs the *.dsc and/or *.changes file.
I think this applies even to the autobuilders.
