Earlier this month, GitLab B.V.'s package signing key expired, requiring them to rotate their key. This means that anyone who uses one of their packages needs to jump through a number of manual hoops to update their apt key configuration, which is an annoying manual process that also requires people to download random files from the Internet -- something extrepo was written to prevent. At least they're served over https, but still.

I didn't notice until today, but I just updated the extrepo metadata to carry the new key. That means that if you enable one of the GitLab repositories through extrepo enable, you will get the new key rather than the old one. On top of that, if you had already enabled the repository through extrepo, all that is needed for you right now to pull in the new key is to run extrepo update.

While I do apologise for the late update, hopefully this should make some people's lives a bit easier.

And if GitLab B.V. reads this: please send me a MR to the repository next time, so that we can make process be done in time ;-)
