It is possible to automate the signing procedures, but I'm not sure how 
convenient it would be in this case.

I believe it's done by generating a new key-pair explicitly for signing 
and have both keys and passphrase on the build machine. The keys are 
then less secure than the build machine, but if you ever have reason to 
doubt the security of either you revoke the keys (which has less imact 
because they're single-purpose keys).

Only the person operating the build machine should sign the keys.

The closest I can come to instructions for this is
