Yes. Which basically means, you *cannot* have both

a) rebase only merges
and
b) every commit must be signed

as policies.

At very best, I think either
a) a future git might support signed rebases ( ie: replacing existing
signatures with new signatures in the name of the person performing
the rebase )
or
b) somebody could write a wrapper that provides signed-rebase support
until git get around to implementing it natively.

and even then, you're going to lose original signing info ( Though,
thats no worse than the signer of the manifest file changing every
sign )
