What do folks think? Would anyone be particularly against getting rid of the GPG support in PyPI?
28K projects is too many to do a mailshot, but would it be worth asking this question more widely than on distutils-sig? Just "Do you maintain a project on PyPI that has GPG sigs and would you care if we removed them? If so, please let us know on the thread on distutils-sig.”
It's 28k *files* but a single project can have more than one file. The total number of projects that have *ever* uploaded a file with a signature is 3.5k and of that 3.5k, only 2.7k projects have their *latest* release uploaded with signatures.
On an unrelated note, it might be a good feature for Warehouse to add some means of notifying project owners for cases like this. Paul
