Hello, Depends on who owns key B, because we need to trust that /this person/ has checked Y's id properly before signing the key. Imho we can only do that if the person owning key B is Developer X. But if this is true applicant Y should simply write a mail to Developer X, asking him to sign key M with his Debian key (A). He can safely do this because he has already done the proper checks when signing key M with key X. cu andreas  "I'd like to become member of debian, ..." -- "See, I told you they'd listen to Reason," [SPOILER] Svfurl fnlf, fuhggvat qbja gur juveyvat tha.
