No, I answered your question.

W.r.t. www.apache.org/dist/{tlp}/KEYS, we have a serious issue to address,
because it's not https: accessible so cannot be trusted.  Yes, it's quite
possible to fetch https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/{tlp}/{code}/trunk/KEYS
but that's not what we suggest, and suboptimal to boot.

The bigger problem is that you appear to be arguing against solving the
problem rather than offering solutions, and I recall some have suggested
that this thread should die already.  Maybe time to take this to maven
where it belongs?
