Hi all, 

I totally agree with Mike. And I just wonder if there’s any similar case from other open source communities.

Best regards,

The board could also ask the qgis non-profit to obtain a certificate and sign, but I would prefer if we stick with the OSGeo branding (which helps many more projects then just QGIS).

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.
