Please note: There are many TUs (and some devs) that didn't reply to
this request yet. There are even TUs that replied to the other master
key holders, but not me.

Please be aware that you have to contact all master key holders
separately in the way stated in the request. It is not sufficient to
reply just one of them!
Also be aware that after some transition time, gerolde and sigurd will
check your signature on db-update, and WILL REJECT THE PACKAGE IF YOUR
KEY IS NOT TRUSTED. Therefore, completing the key submission to the
master key holders is non-optional!

When replying, please make sure that "thomas at master-key.archlinux.org"
is included in the "To:" field of your email (otherwise I will probably
miss the mail). If you fail to configure your mail client for signing
emails, please write the text into a plaintext file, sign it, and attach it.
