I'm not familiar with gpg, but if the script checks by default for a
valid signature of the patch file (either from the user keyring or from
a directory to be populated with keys) I guess it's more acceptable for
distribution? We can always provide a --no-check-signature to disable
With signed patch, we could probably accept them with an automated
system on the compile farm (email and web form), do people have
experience with such a setup?
