The purpose of this suggestion is to arrange that the private keys
whose public halves dgit is relying on to get accurate information
about what source code is in Debian, are stored on appropriate Debian

Essentially I'm suggesting that we use the key management and
distribution model we use for apt archive signing.  The existence of
the one-shot pseudo-CA is an artefact of TLS/X.509/etc. braindamage,
but it is purely syntactic and has no security implications.

Would it help if we chatted about this on IRC or something ?
