Linus will probably respond, but in short it's good to be in the web of
trust, but until you are it's still worth signing your tags.

When you do get some signatures on your key, then we'll be able to see
that all your existing pull requests were really from you.

At the end of the day what matters is that you send good code over a
period of time - and whether the Australian Government agrees that your
name is "Tobin Harding" is somewhat orthogonal to that.

Sounds good, maybe we should have a 15 minute key signing slot at the
kernel miniconf.

Yeah if you want to that's no problem, just give me some notice :)
