No. That CGI actually generates a key, a CSR and gets the CA to sign it
so that in the end it can send back a single file with both the key and
signed cert inside it. So right now, it's 100% working.

Fixed for CLA .cgi (as you said, minor ;) )

But if we need to redirect an email address to have sent emails be
piped to a script on a server which has access to the FAS in order to
check the GPG signature... it's going to be slightly harder and you
will most likely need me to configure some stuff on the email side.

In hope you'll be available....

If we don't really care about the agreement, and only want to verify
the user's GPG signature, then we could short-circuit that part of the
signup and just let the user upload a signed file through the FAS web
