        Description

        When jpackage is building a dmg or pkg bundle in two phases (that is, building an app-image type first and then using that app-image to build dmg or pkg bundle), and if signing is used, the --mac-sign option may be needed in both phases.
        Though not strictly an error (you can build a signed pkg containing an unsigned app-image, or an unsigned pkg containing a signed app-image) the result could not be notarized, as both package and app-image needs to be signed to pass notarization.

        We have had at least one user wondering why notarization failed in such a case, So this issue proposes to add a warning message when an unsigned app-image is used to build a bundle using --mac-sign option.
