Well, it is a matter of finding someone that can sign your key, right?
If there is a list of "offering" people the "in need" guy should first
mail them; if that fail the real question is «which place can help the
guy most in finding someone that can sign his/her key?». Assuming that
the request is scarce enough, I believe -devel has a good change of
finding someone. -private is good too, but the guy can't see the mail
and can believe it got lost.

I don't understand why you take it personal: AFAICT you stepped back
_before_ the whole thing got moved to the wiki. Also, I personally did
not advocate moving to a wiki, in fact I've nothing to do with that; but
now that it has been done anyhow, I don't understand why (in addition to
the wiki) we need to have an extra person receiving those emails.
