I'm sure you understand that's easier to trust anybody that tells you

From a packager prespective is as important the application itself, as
to trust the application's author.

If the packager doesn't know who really is the author, and he hides his
identity behind pseudonyms, the packager should not trust him.

In fact you're arguing "I know It was not ok" using a signature with
your real name in this post, instead of the "arc_of_descent" signature
you used in your previous ones.
