And what's the difference to your proposed solution?

Basically, the differences are that a) one has to control paper sheet(s)
instead of a private signature key data value and computing environment,
and b) this control is about integrity only, no need for long-term
private signature key secrecy protection.

But I agree that the attractiveness of the procedure is debatable. IT
security is seldom devoid of impediments.

Either way my questions remain: which files are involved in a digital
signature of a revision range? Also which subversion legitimate
operations (e.g. move repository from Linux to Windows) would invalidate
the digital signatures?

(not being a subscriber to the list, a CC to me would be appreciated)

Thanks
