signing packages heads-up

When trying to sign some Debian packages fails, you might think that temporally changing LANG to find similar errors on the web is a good idea.

But when you see that the expired key is not the default one and you made sure that the GPG agent environment info is correct, while signing still fails, you might start to consider that bad rendering of the "s comma below" character in your name might be worth taking into account.

gpg: skipped "Eddy Petrișor ": secret key not available

Also, remembering that LC_MESSAGES=C is the right way to have English messages, while preserving all the rest of the localization info, is also useful.
