I am curently in the new maintatainer process and just waiting for approval.
My key has been signed by a Debian Developer, but I am not DD yet. Would it
help Arvid _now_, if I sign his key? I am in Göttingen nearly every
weekend, this is not far from Clausthal, where Arvid (apparently) lives. I am
pretty sure there a busses going from Clausthal to Göttingen, it is not more
than 30-50 km, I guess (not sure, but certainly less than 100km). I do not
own a car myself, so I cannot visit him.

Clausthal is in a mountain region, that is why it is not easy to reach.

I think it will help him at least as soon as I am DD.
