Exactly, but that's going to delay the next release.

Doing yet another release directly after the signing stuff is done
shouldn't be a problem. But if we hit problems and need to delay, we
still have a fairly recent snapshot and can thus take our time.

Any regressions compared to the previous release?

Once pacman 4 goes to core, we need signing in archiso and AIF. The
archiso part is rather easy (set up a keyring for the live environment),
the AIF part is harder
