One of Jürgen's proposals was in essence to have infrastructure controlled buildbots with
project provided setups which would be run by the Infrastructure team that would include certificates
that were under Infrastructure's control. These buildbots would be based on the project's
ci buildbots. Infrastructure would be given the release tag and would be able to fully build
each of the binary artifacts on the appropriate OS.

Perhaps that would meet Infrastructure's approval?

So far these proposals have been met with lazy -1's. Please tell us what is wrong with these
ideas? This really is a good faith attempt to be compliant with what we all agree are important
policies. Specifically assuring that the ASF's credibility is not in any way damaged by the
misuse of an apache.org digital signing certificate.
