Well, I am not sure about the details for a server or a user when it comes
to overhead and if you mean with one particular vendow GitHub, well
that may be the beginning, for such request. But like I mentioned if people
would wish to manage key distribution themselves, without using third
parties, like Hagrid or hokeypuck or even running such software and
servers I strongly believe that WKD could be an excellent choice, if
this would be fixed.
