I'd like to make some progress on this.

Given that we have gone around in circles a few times over excatly how
to handle code-signing I'd like to move forward with the Symantec
service and *if* we hit a snag then we can discuss alternative approaches.

I plan to use Tomcat as the first test case primarily since as I am a
Tomcat committer and part of the infra team using Tomcat means I have
the karma to fix stuff as issues arise.

Once we have this working for Tomcat's Windows installer, we can extend
this to other projects / artifact types (e.g. JARs).

In order to move this forward, who do I need to contact at Symantec to
set up whatever accounts etc are required.
