I suspect the new encryption feature would break
popcon.skolelinux.org, as we have not investigated the new feature and
use popularity-contest directly from Debian.  Our collector would
start getting encrypted submissions and lack the key to decrypt them.

For Jessie, I hope we have time to figure out a solution, but for
Wheezy we are not going to rewrite that part of our system.

Happy hacking
