‚ÄčOne example where an OSGeo certificate would make much more sense than
separate ones is the QGIS Mac KyngChaos installer. (Pretty much quoting my
colleague Richard D. here.) Since William prefers to package the
dependencies separately, it would seem quite awkward to sign, e.g. GDAL
with the QGIS.org certificate. A general OSGeo certificate would seem
appropriate. I assume the same might be the case sooner or later for the
OSGeo4W installer.

Best wishes,
Anita
