OpenPGP signatures are always dated.

Assuming that the project secretary does not go stark raving mad, he
would only accept signatures made so recently that the voter could not
reasonably just have his new key added to the keyring instead.

"The whole NM team" is hard to misunderstand, isn't it?

Read §5.2.5 of the Consitution, second half.

If we do, it will consitute irrefutable proof that all the ftpmaster
team has entirely too much time on their hands and that all who claim
otherwise belong to the Cabal.

Seriously, instead of asking a bunch of high project officials to sign
your ID, you could just have them sponsor your package. That is
quicker and easier on everybody.
