Subject Re: Official code signing certificate
Date Tue, 28 May 2013 23:36:34 GMT
I was asked to restate the request Logging Services has of Infra:\

Logging Services would like to provide infra with:
 - A Chainsaw release candidate vote thread providing a link to the
release candidate build/svn rev
 - Chainsaw's maven script supports Java code signing.  Infra has to
provide the script with info on the location of the code signing cert
and keys etc.

I don't believe it makes sense for Logging Services to try to describe
the process Infra should be using to get the artifacts signed...we
just need signed artifacts.  Infra understands their requirements
around security and workflow and we don't.  I personally believe the
service WRowe described may work fine for our simple needs, and I
would hope Infra would look into it.

I would like to request that Infra please tell me if they understand
the requirements I've described and provide a technical solution that
will meet our needs.
