Special announcements

We plan to create a new Release Signing Key (RSK) [3] for Qubes OS 4.2.
Normally, we have only one RSK for each major release. However, for the
4.2 release, we will be using Qubes Builder version 2, which is a
complete rewrite of the Qubes Builder. Out of an abundance of caution,
we would like to isolate the build processes of the current stable 4.1
release and the upcoming 4.2 release from each other at the
cryptographic level in order to minimize the risk of a vulnerability in
one affecting the other. We are including this notice as a canary
special announcement since introducing a new RSK for a minor release is
an exception to our usual RSK management policy.

Disclaimers and notes

We would like to remind you that Qubes OS has been designed under the
assumption that all relevant infrastructure is permanently compromised.
This means that we assume NO trust in any of the servers or services
which host or provide any Qubes-related data, in particular, software
updates, source code repositories, and Qubes ISO downloads.

This canary scheme is not infallible. Although signing the declaration
makes it very difficult for a third party to produce arbitrary
declarations, it does not prevent them from using force or other means,
like blackmail or compromising the signers' laptops, to coerce us to
produce false declarations.

The proof of freshness provided below serves to demonstrate that this
canary could not have been created prior to the date stated. It shows
that a series of canaries was not created in advance.

This declaration is merely a best effort and is provided without any
guarantee or warranty. It is not legally binding in any way to anybody.
None of the signers should be ever held legally responsible for any of
the statements made here.
