Oooh, as one of the 246 Debian Maintainers without a debian.org address,
I would obviously appreciate it if we could be included in the offer.
Some of the MemberBenefits offers accept a GPG-signed email to a special
address, which can be checked against keyring.debian.org.

On the other hand, I believe that would exclude Contributors such as
translators, perhaps the FrontDesk team would have an idea of how a
third-party could verify project status by email validity?
