Good idea, after James' message about we strongly prefers a signed key I
have not let any applicants through without a signed key.
I generally run through the db.d.o and then try to filter on
province/state as well as country.
I then might say developers are at "Sydney, Wollongong, Nowra,
Strathfield". and let the applicant tell me the closest one:
"Strathfield, if not then Sydney".
Then I ask the maintainers, only if they agree do i tell the applicant
it the maintainers name.
