Of course if he had just signed his name as David Woodjouse III, we
would have been none the wiser. Does the Fedora/Red Hat organization
do any background checks to make sure the person who has signed the

So in some ways, we reward dishonesty and punish honesty. I am not
sure there is a solution to this that isnt worse than the present.
