A small thing which I've brought up for discussion twice (and both times
it was mostly ignored), but which I'd really like to see discussed or
even agreed on:

A simple policy making signed commits mandatory, plus a simple policy on
key length, permissible encryption/signature algorithms, and a
well-defined place where (public) keys are made available for verifying
and checking the validity of the signatures.


It would greatly improve the current status quo and remove any ambiguity
which might motivate people to use a 4-bit key for signing to be within
the letter of the law.


Thanks,

Patrick
