control-archive 1.8.0

This is the software that maintains the archive of control messages and the newsgroups and active files on ftp.isc.org. I update things in place, but it's been a while since I made a formal release, and one seemed overdue (particularly since it needed some compatibility tweaks for GnuPG v1).

In code changes, signing IDs with whitespace are now supported, summaries when there is no log file for the summary period don't produce an error, and gpg1 is now used explicitly with flags to allow weak digest algorithms since the state of crypto for Usenet control messages is rather dire.

On the documentation side, there are multiple fixes to the README.html file that's also shipped with pgpcontrol, updating email addresses, URLs, package versions, and various other details.

For hierarchy changes, the grisbi.* key has been cleaned up a bit for hopefully more reliable verification, and everything related to gov.* has been dropped.

You can get the latest release from the control-archive distribution page.
