Hello all,

In a meeting during DC9 in Caceres in 2009, Joey Hess, Jonathan
McDowell and I agreed to pass the management of the DM keyring to
the keyring team to integrate the DMs more into various Debian
resources. It was done pretty well.

During DC14 in Portland I meet Enrico Zini who wanted to merge the
DM applications into the NM process. We agreed on it. It is work in

I'll love to be part of the keyring team (I maintained keys in the
DM keyring from 2007 to 2009) processing DM applications until it's
integrated into the NM process.

Hopefully I'll get the support of Jonathan McDowell, Gunnar Wolf and
Daniel Kahn Gillmor.

Kind Regards,
