This list. It should be an experienced core dev and not any random person
who happens to subscribe to python-dev and is willing to do it. Otherwise
it would be no better than writing the URL to the devguide on a piece of
paper and saying "have at it". =)

I applaud the foundation for getting an electronic signature method in
However, I have to say that to my mind echosign is nothing more than
"authentication theater", and I wonder if it is going to make us look
more than a bit clueless to the tech community. I'm surprised that
a lawyer would consider a "signature" generated from typed text to be
useful for anything. If you are are going to accept the typed signature,
just accept the typed signature.
I was asked to sign a legal document I cared about that way once and I refused.
At least there's a way to upload a real signature.
