Hmm, Debian has a useful character, '~' which sorts after everything
else, and the packaging scripts turn 2.69test1 into 2.69~~test1 and
2.69rc1 into 2.69~rc1 to avoid this problem. Does the same facility
exist in Arch?

Good point. I have a well-known GPG key (not massively signed, but
with some web-of-trust support, and in the Debian keyring).  I'll
organise to sign releases with that. The test and rc releases will
probably be signed with a different key (signed in  turn with the one
above) since they are made automatically with git hooks, so the key
will need to be on the git server and not have a passphrase.

DNSSEC for thekelleys.org.uk should be possible too: looks like my
registrar supports it.
