this is expected, and it means that you did not assign any trust value to
the key used for signing. To simplify things extremely, it means that the
software was signed by the key "3CE4...", but that you do not know Ludovic
Courtès, and in particular do not know that this key really belongs to the
Ludovic Courtès person as it is claimed.

So things are fine, no need to worry.
