I've never had to say `I'm from debian-qa' when I've tried fixing bugs,
or asked if maintainers would like me to do an NMU, and my own key is
good enough when I'm actually uploading packages.

The only thing that's special about -qa people is that we're busybodies
who'd like to fix other peoples bugs. But just sending a message `Hi,
mind if I do an NMU' is probably more evidence of that than a valid PGP
signature is anyway.

I don't speak for anyone save myself. PGP encrypted mail preferred.
