To be accurate, I asked you to move the discussion to -project. Here, it
is visible to everyone, and doesn't require the kind of real-time
attention that IRC does.

The rationale is simple: to avoid concentration of power into the hands
of the few, and keep it in the hands of everyone. Since I believe the
decision on someone's membership should be collectively in the hands of
all the members, I don't think the task of editing a keyring should be
restricted to one or a couple of people.
