Technically, when the process can be done without actual paper, maybe
it's possible, I don't know (hell, I don't even know if uses PGP).
I just assume this part is more delicate to modify because that's where
the "legal validity" checks would happen.

Maybe address@hidden (mailing of maintainers of GNU packages)?
