    When will they start defaulting their repos to HTTPS? Especially for things like security.ubuntu.com? Quite ridiculous in 2023.

    Temporary interruptions because of builds or tests failing should be expected with automated builds like this, I think. They exist in part to detect incompatibilities between the kernel code & build system versions early, I suppose…

    They are not signed. You can make your own signature, if you care to do the extra work. Last I checked, all Tumbleweed kernels were signed, so if you really want to closely follow the latest kernels and absolutely need unSecure Boot that may be an option.

    Nope, just explained before.
    When I had a laptop for work, I encounter the issue on the first ubuntu mainline kernel 'cause it was unsigned.

    Nope ... for example : https://kernel.ubuntu.com/mainline/v6.6.1/

    Test amd64/build succeeded (rc=0, on=amd64, time=0:09:24, log=amd64/log)
    amd64/linux-headers-6.6.1-060601-generic_6.6.1-060601.202311151749_amd64.deb
    amd64/linux-headers-6.6.1-060601_6.6.1-060601.202311151749_all.deb
    amd64/linux-image-unsigned-6.6.1-060601-generic_6.6.1-060601.202311151749_amd64.deb
    amd64/linux-modules-6.6.1-060601-generic_6.6.1-060601.202311151749_amd64.deb​

    All kernels are unsigned.
    You can create your own signature, enroll it in your EFI, and use it to sign Ubuntu mainline kernel after install.

    Or using your own signature, you can also generate DEB package with signed kernel / modules.

    or being able to test daily Git kernel builds with ease or weekly RCs
    You really should be compiling those git and rc kernels yourself Michael. Handing that work off to a third party just defeats the purpose. Those pre-release sources are made available so that you will build and test them yourself on your own equipment and file bug reports, not for you to run competitive benchmarks with pre-compiled binaries.

    While true, I am happy that this service is available again - and would hope, that there would exist
    a rolling package for kernel and mesa (maybe with dependencies to reach correct Vulkan conformance level etc.) to
    follow mainline (maybe beginning with Linux x.y.3 to avoid most problems) and Mesa (maybe beginning with Mesa x.y.3).
    But with snap this seems very unlikely - and nice that KDE neon took extra time to make problematic packages no longer
    being provided via snap as in the base system Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.
