 Replying to [comment:28 gk]:
 > Careful! We need to keep at least one of the MAR signing keys we are
 currently shipping. Otherwise it is a bit hard with updates. :)

 The new updater needs MAR files in the new format, so I don't see why we
 need to keep one of the old signing keys. But it is OK to do so for now.

 > So, if I see this correctly then #20589 added the one we are currently
 using in the alpha for signing and #23916 added the current backup key. I
 estimate we'll have the rebase ready before I'll add a new signing key.
 Thus, I think we could drop #20589 and add an adapted commit for #23916
 that basically creates the status quo. And then we'd replace the current
 backup key with the new one using SHA-384.

 For now, that is what I have done in the local tree that Kathy and I are
 working on; hopefully we will be done soon and make the patches available
