F-Droid's PGP key has expired

#1

Hello,

I’m swichting from Android to LineageOS for the first time and I would like to install F-Droid.

After downloading the APK and the PGP signature files from f-droid.org I wanted to verify the APK file on my Mac:

gpg --verify /Users/xxx/Downloads/FDroid.apk.asc

But the PGP key has expired:

gpg: Hinweis: Dieser Schlüssel ist verfallen!

It’s German saying something like “gpg: Note: This key has expired!”.

Is it safe to proceed?

I get the same output:

$ gpg --verify FDroid.apk.asc  FDroid.apk
gpg: Signature made Do 11 Apr 2019 14:41:19 CEST
gpg:                using RSA key 7A029E54DD5DCE7A
gpg: Good signature from "F-Droid <admin@f-droid.org>" [full]
gpg: Note: This key has expired!
Primary key fingerprint: 37D2 C987 89D8 3119 4839  4E3E 41E7 044E 1DBA 2E89
     Subkey fingerprint: 802A 9799 0161 1234 6E1F  EFF4 7A02 9E54 DD5D CE7A

Which doesn’t make any sense since the key used has no experiation date:

$ gpg --list-keys 7A029E54DD5DCE7A
pub   rsa4096 2014-04-25 [C]
      37D2C98789D8311948394E3E41E7044E1DBA2E89
uid           [  full  ] F-Droid <admin@f-droid.org>

I don’t know what’s going on…

For me it also says, the Certificate wich signed the APK has expired.

The update should be on the keyservers, it is also attached:
