    Default W: repo XY uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)

    I am quite concerned about security and so I don't like messages like this :
    HTML Code:
     W: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/p_conrad:/coins/xUbuntu_16.04/Release.gpg: Signature by key C39B1D488C8856171C1F6CB329D8C8DAC4447CF3 uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)
    And that's another thing - I want to contact the author of that repo but there was no contact info (no email) It'd be nice to force users when creating repo to add email (mandatory field/ parameter...) and verify if it's working - cause of the situations like that.
    Thanks Rob
