No, I don't thought of PGP/GPG for this only about a signature, that
tells the maintainer, that the person, who contaced him works in the
QA-Team and contacts him, because there's a problem with his package. I
think, that this would make it easier for the other maintainers to see,
who contacts them. And I don't thought this only for asking about NMUs.
Instead I meant this for every mail, that you as a member of the
QA-Team, write to a maintainer to fix or discuss a bug. Opinions?

Well, O.K.  I'll compromise with my principles because of EXISTENTIAL DESPAIR!
