I'll just state that this list is the home for flood development.  =)

Yup, when you are ready to do the release, just add your key to the 
KEYS file in httpd-dist.  If you need access to the repository (you 
probably don't have it already), drop me a line and I will ensure you 
are added to httpd-dist.  (Or, just submit a patch to this list with 
your public key and one of us can commit it.)

We can also setup a way to verify your key as well.  I'm not aware of 
anyone else who lives near you, but we may be able to find someone on 
the same continent.  (If possible, we could arrange a phone call or 
something - making international calls is a bit troublesome for me, 
but I imagine we can work something out.)

Totally.  =)

If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.  But, I'll stand 
back and let you work your magic.  If you need help or guidance, let 
me know and I'll give pointers.

It's unlikely that I'll have a lot of time, but I should be able to 
test a release candidate and provide feedback.  Good luck!  -- justin
