No, sorry, I was talking about the Robot CA key (C521097E).  It and I have
certainly exchanged signatures.  I'm on the GD, so I have its signature (if
you ask the GD for it), but I haven't signed the GD key.  If I ever do, it
will be to certify that it is what it says it is (a dumb key signer).  Like
my other signatures, that's not an endorsement of its key signing policy,
just certification of identity.

Fine with me; it's your list.  8-)
