	Are you saying that there is a never a reason for someone not
in the keyring to post a message to d-d-a? Or that the message which
started this thread didn't belong on d-d-a?

	Josip and I are talking about the general case of a non-DD
posting to d-d-a, and not a specific email. In this same way that you
would sponsor packages for someone in the NM process, you should be
willing to sponsor a message to d-d-a if it is justified.
