I'm harsher than you, and might be quite antagoized about even the prospect
of cooperating.

The repository must remain tool-agnostic.

Better, but why should *they* be tasked with putting artifacts in the
repository?  "Why don't you just do it if you want it?  I've got enough and
better things to do, so why bother me with all of this repository stuff?"

Arguably, we want to make sure that we have legit artifacts.  I'd make more
of an effort to educate people about signing their artifacts and becoming
part of a WoT, and pushing the repository tool authors on the issue.  Once
again, it is entirely irresponsible to use unauthenticated artifacts.

If it is going to go out over the ASF brand, it had better be vetted and
voted on, and should be approved by the PRC.
