Item14127: Debian packages at http://fosiki.com/Foswiki_debian/ are protected with a weak digest algorithm
Current State: Needs Developer
Released In: n/a
Target Release: n/a
Applies To: Web Site
Component: Debian repository
Recently I've been getting the following warning when updating packages from your Debian repository:
apt upgrade reports 'W: http://fosiki.com/Foswiki_debian/dists/stable/InRelease
: Signature by key 9556331C5DB4434AE8553CEA379393E0AAEE96F6
uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)'
Just letting you know, doesn't yet prevent packages being downloaded/installed.
Thanks for the report. Unfortunately the foswiki debian packages are no longer maintained. The developer who generated them left the project and has been unable to make the build tools available, so we are unable to update them.

Damn, thanks for letting me know - I guess its time to hit up checkinstall then.

Lest I forget: Once somebody finds the time to tackle this, https://github.com/jordansissel/fpm
might come in handy.
