Plus,

I personally think that all the committers post to
annouce@apache.org etc. to use S/MIME.

I am no longer an individual sponsor (by
svn commit: r779649), so this is just IMHO:

# By the way, why there could be no "emertus sponsor"
# list? I donated to Python Software Foundation 4yrs ago
# and still remain my name listed on the web. I think it
# is rather Normal. Really Strange...

VeriSign Class 2 is 700USD/page per year IIRC.

All the members to have Class2 *for free* would be reasonable.
Plus, "donated" committers (e.g. 100USD) to have Class2
would be reasonable as well. 

WDYT?

Tetsuya
