Yep, that's the way I expected it to be.  I'll harden the signer for it.

That will help, but I would remove them just once by editing it.
Next step of the enforcer would be to remove those entries, so they
shouldn't come back, and I'll have a hardenend signer for  you then

For now, just remove the keys from the signconf and perform a

   ods-signer update --all
