As I didn't see much reaction, I went ahead and did some testing with a 
patched postinst. It seems to be ok in both cases (apache2 and nginx), I'm 
attaching the patch here.

I've recently rotated my key, and my new one is not yet included in the bpo 
keyring. Can anybody please double-check the attached patch and upload it to 

Thanks, Luca
