So that new release schedule explains why 55 hasn't been bumped up to 56 today.

Is there a painless way to sign unsigned addons, without much pain (needing to tinker with files)? I have a handful that needs signing in anticipation of upcoming XUL addon snafu.

I try to upload them to myself (submitting a new addon), but always get "Duplicate add-on ID found". So annoying...
I don't know want to change the ID. There's some slim chance one might get updated before v57.

Also there's this weird thing where the latest version is not signed for this addon, but all the earlier ones are: ... /versions/
