Re: Feature Request: Changeset Signing

I searched through todo, open issues, notes etc, but I didn't find any
document about signing commit.

I'd like to read some development notes, if available, to see what
choice are already made and what not (ie if you are going to use
OpenPGP, or whatever else).

Bye.
