If somebody wanted to tackle the issue right now, there's also the
echelon information in LDAP. Together with a list of people who have
neither set a new password since the SSL thing nor uploaded ssh keys we
might get a list of candidates. Contact DSA if you want to look into
it (echelon is public, keys can be found in /var/lib/misc on project
machines, passwords you'll have to ask for).
