It doesn't need cleaning up. I wrote the tree-signing GLEPs a few years
ago, and those were approved by the council, really they just need
updating to a recent Portage and usage.
They provide better support than just getting every developer to sign
the Manifests, because to do so while eclasses are unsigned is a giant
security hole. MetaManifest in the proposal covers that by getting the
entire tree to a state of being signed.

Yes. See layout.conf/repo.conf. Also controls usage of thin Manifests.
