Right :) I didn't want to out you as "a guy who has a minor problem
getting his key signed". But you asked us to ask you why.

And it boils down to being motivated to do it. I hope this thread
motivates you. In the worst case, I hope most people whose keys are
retired from the active keyring next January will be motivated by the
need (or desire?) to do Debian work without requiring a sponsor. But
each person has their own story.

If you didn't explain your situation earlier on as a hard case (and we
do have some), it's not up to us to get into personal details. Only to
let you know that actions will be taken!
