Change Description

With these changes, it is possible to set a URL for the browser to check updates.

When it is set, a marsigner.der is passed to the container, to replace the official nightly keys.

It does not do other stuff, such as using custom URLs to generate the update responses, nor allow signing automatically MARs.

It would be handy, too, but I don't have a clue on how to modify the perl scripts.
