Code Signing Is Flaky and Unreliable

Tom Harrington:

For whatever it’s worth, I’ve been developing iOS apps since early 2008 and I regard the code signing process as conceptually straightforward. In practice though, it’s flaky and unreliable. More than six years in and I still routinely lose a day to trying to get code signing working again.
