Both on that page and in the developer's reference, it's explicitly

can contact the Front Desk and they will work out an alternative
establishing your identity.
Yes, that's helpful. :)
Some things to consider:
1) You don't need to have your key signed when you start the
when you end the process. So apply now *and* contact the FD about
identification at the same time. These two processes can perfectly
function in parallel.
Ah, I didn't know that. It's a checkbox, so it looks like you have to
have it fulfilled to proceed. Thanks for pointing that out, Thijs. :)
2) Get listed as looking for signatures, both on the GPG page
aswell as on
biglumber.com. Having your key signed by other people in the web of
is already a lot better than no signatures at all.
I have all the trust that a good arrangement can be made with the
desk, but it helps a lot to be as active as possible yourself.
Very true. I've done both those things, so I hope my activity will
help create some results. :))
By the GPG page, you mean the NM GPG page? If so, I have done that.
I've registered as looking for a signature, and I've emailed <gpg-
firstname.lastname@example.org> asking for help with getting a signature.
I still think it's asking a lot to have someone come up here, but
maybe we can find another way. Then again, it is an interstate
highway, so someone might be on their way from Adelaide to New South
Wales, the Australian Capital Territory or Queensland, then they
would go almost past my house. So it could work out. :))
It would be great to have the opportunity to meet someone in the
project face-to-face. Being bedridden does isolate you a lot in that
way. Computing contact is a _lot_ better than nothing, and I can only
very occasionally physically tolerate visitors, anyway, but it's very
special when you can. :D
