Only require 2 signatures for zip file?

I know this has come up before, but let me raise it again. We are
always in need of committers to sign the zip files. Currently both
myself and Paul Burba run the tests on Windows and sign the zip file.
I am not sure if there is anyone else available to sign them for this
release. I checked with DJ and he is not going to be available to
sign the RC2 release. Brane has not signed a release in a long time
and I am assuming this release will be no different. Lieven? I think
you have done some Windows work are you planning to sign the zip file.

Do we really need 3 signatures for the zip file, given that it only
applies to a single OS? We are fortunate that we have *nix committers
across the gamut of Linux, OSX and BSD, but what if all 3 signatures
for *nix came from OSX or Ubuntu users? It seems like if we are
comfortable with only 3 signatures for the *nix tarballs, then 2 ought
to be enough for Windows.

Failing that, who else is willing to setup and test on Windows? We
have a lot of active downstream users of the Windows release. We have
Jeremy and Bert from AnkhSVN and Stefan from TortoiseSVN. How about
if we started accepting and counting their signatures towards a
release? Assuming they are willing to run the tests and provide
signature of course.
