My systems run cron-apt with an hourly rhythm, running off ftp2.de.d.o. Once in a while, some of them complain about invalid signatures on release files:
CRON-APT LINE: /usr/bin/apt-get update -o quiet=2
W: GPG error: http://debian.debian.zugschlus.de lenny Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG A70DAF536070D3A1 Debian Archive Automatic Signing Key (4.0/etch)
W: GPG error: http://debian.debian.zugschlus.de sid Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG A70DAF536070D3A1 Debian Archive Automatic Signing Key (4.0/etch)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
This usually happens in the late evening CEST. In the next cron-apt run, things are fine again. What's going on here? Is this part of a mirror update process where the Release and Release.gpg files are inconsistent?
Any idea how to get rid of these error messages?

Dear admins of mail-archive.com, I think that "protecting" E-Mail addresses in a public archive of a technical mailing list which has the topic of E-Mail is a very bad idea.
This leads to archive quotes like
We've been getting many many strange mailman-bounces. It seems that
somewhere the mailman-bounces address is mis-configured. It should be
[EMAIL PROTECTED], but mail seems to be sent as
[EMAIL PROTECTED] (note missing "u"). That's causing
bounces to bounce all over the place...
which has better not been archived at all - it doesn't help when vital information is removed from the archived mail.
Yes, this example was taken from an actual archive entry. Sheesh.
Wie hat die DB es eigentlich geschafft, dass die Ansagen in ICE-T und ICE 3 in besserer Telefonqualität kommen? Das war im ICE 1 um Längen besser.
