The (unvalidatable)ZSK rollover has completed - the old ZSK with id 23763 is
no longer "post-published" - and an (unvalidatable)KSK rollover has started,
with the old KSK (id=19324) signing the DNSKEY RRset and the new KSK (id=1112)
"pre-published". (Just in time for next Wednesday's distribution of the DURZ
to all the *.root-servers.net operators except J.)
