Subject Re: ASF code signing certificate

If such a certificate would be prudent, I don't think anyone will
object to shelling out 500 bucks. Though not something I'd personally
want to pay, but for an organization with our sponsors it is not that
much, and money well spent.

I suggest sending this message to general@incubator and infra@ and see
where that takes us.

purposes. This doesn't inspire quite as much confidence in the authenticity of the code as
we would like.  :-)

graduate. Anyone have any contacts at either place?
