[arch-dev-public] Master key holders response time

We have an issue with the response time of master key holders.
Currently there are two new TUs that have not had their key signed by
three master key holders.

Not signed: Ionut, Dan, Pierre

There is four other bugs open with keys that have not been signed by
Dan.  The response time for Ionut was brought up earlier in the year [1]
and was rectified at the time, but there has been limited (or no?)
activity since.

This completely unfair on the trusted users involved. I understand that
people are busy, but it should not take more than a week to sign a key
once it has been verified.  We also need more than Thomas verifying the
keys (I am at fault there too).

Is it time to cycle our key holders?  There are some good candidates
that have been around here for multiple years and are very active still.
