The signing thing is a security feature. I don't like a workaround to
disable a security feature instead of fixing it.

What makes me feel a bit bad is that everybody has fixed versions by now,
only we enterprise Linux users using the ESR version still don't have
fixed versions available. I don't complain because we usually get very
fast updates, but this time we seem stuck. I can live with it but it's a
bit difficult to explain to our users.

Did upstream already release new packages?
