Description

We received the reviews by email on (<> and <>).

Summary:

  • Consider splitting a revocation key instead of a revocation certificate. The benefit would be to have an expiry date on the key, which is not the case with a certificate.
  • Regularly check with the people in the scheme to make sure that the communication channel with them is still working and that they still have the instructions and their share.
  • Update "until we publish a new signing key" in the document as it won't be enough to build again trust within our user base (cf. other possible fake keys on the public key servers).

Another improvement to add to the mechanism: it's useful to have someone hosting the mailing list being part of group B, C, or D since they can take care of its existence (eg. bypass cleaning polices of non-used mailing lists, etc.)
