+1, done.

+1, done as well. The .asc file for the source release archive includes your
PGP sig as well. I'd love to attend a code signing party as well.

+1, done.

+1, done in r797816 and r797817.

+1, sorry I did it the old fashioned way. If I'm the RM on 0.5, I'll make
sure to handle it as a source jar.
