No, everything looks fine, and I just pulled it.

But your old version of git won't be able to do that pull (or
request-pull) since it doesn't have support for the signed tag
feature. So the signed tag itself works fine, and I can pull from you,
but yes, you need to have a newer version yourself to see how that
works.
