[QGIS-Developer] Question on signed windows installers

Hi J├╝rgen, 

I noticed that the Windows all-in-one installers are now signed (Open
Source Geospatial Foundation). Is 2.18.12 the first signed version or
were the previous versions also signed? 

In any case - wanted to report back that our AV scanner did not complain
about 2.18.12, whereas it "swallowed" the QGIS 3 weekly without even
visibly notifying (only in the log file one could see that QGIS 3 was
sent to quarantine and the original installer file removed). Perhaps
signing installers builds trust with AV software? Installing over
OSGEO4W installer is always fine. 

Greetings, 

Andreas
