Hi Jerry,

Thanks for the quick action! 

This REALLY messed up our production signers, I hope Paul & RH take quick action :(

OpenDNSSEC 1.4.0a1 has appeared in repositories that are apparently configured on production systems by default. Consequently, our well-managed 1.3.9 install has been upgraded to 1.4.0a1 and all configuration has been wiped.
