Well, if anyone agreed that was "inordinately long", I wonder what they
think of the fact that the same KSK/DS mismatch is still there, three
months on.

Apart from that, all the RRSIGs in the zone expired on 2013-09-20.

One has to feel that the administrators of this TLD should never have
attempted to make it signed, if this is the best they can do.
