Do you disagree? Do you think that if somebody leaves the project, the
sponsor is responsible for the orphaned packages?

These tools are in "fedora" cvs. Sometimes the scripts are tweaked for the
buildsys installation environment and may need a few modifications if used
elsewhere. The upgradecheck.py script simply takes an external config file
with definitions of SRPMS repos. Whether it would work to include the
needsign repo, I don't know, because the needsign repo is a multi-arch
repo -- all archs including SRPMS in a single repo. :)
