Package: bugs.debian.org 
Severity: normal

It seems the From field is re-encoded, causing it to be different if it 
contains umlaute.
Therefore, a DKIM signature fails, and popular (/properly configured) mail 
servers reject the
messages or think they are spam

We just hit that with #838545
-zwiebelbot/#debian-devel- Debian#838545: apt not showing any package update if 
just one repo is not valid - https://bugs.debian.org/838545

The original email was sent with From: =?iso-8859-1?Q?Bj=F6rn?= JACKE 
<debianb...@j3e.de>
But it arrived as From: "Björn JACKE" <debianb...@j3e.de>

Solution: Strip DKIM fields from re-encoded emails
