Subject: Re: leaking_addresses script..

Re-send with the _actual_ CC's

Adding to CC: Greg, Steve, Paul - kernel developers CC'd on leaking
addresses stuff that may know my face.

Adding to CC: Michael - closest kernel developer by proximity that I
have had direct correspondence with.

Adding to CC: Konstantin - previous correspondence re tree hosting.

Linus I'm not in the web of trust, pulling a tag signed by an _unknown_
key is not secure is it? Would it not be better to get into the web of
trust first before requesting you pull any code from me.

Web of trust presents a social problem that I am not versed in. With my
limited knowledge I can present the following solutions.

1. Get my key signed at in January in Sydney.
2. Request a video call with _some_ number of kernel developers to sign
   key (suggested by Konstantin).
3. Drive to Canberra and meet face to face with Michael to sign key
   (if he would agree to that).

I'm guessing I've missed the boat for this merge window so the option
that imposes the least on other developers time is option 1, get my key
signed by a bunch of kernel developers at LCA.

Also, once I get in the web of trust I can apply to get my tree hosted
on so you don't have to pull from GitHub.

Please advise when, and if, you have time.
