Dan Kegel originally wrote, we maintained together for a while. He's
been inactive with Wine{,tricks} for several years. I'd list us both,
but I am the current maintainer.

Commits and tags have been signed for a while (since GitHub started
displaying it). See all the 'verified' signs in

Also the last release (20160425) was signed:

I plan to sign future releases as well. I've added a script for
releases, so as long as I remember to use that, it should be signed ;)

If there's something else I can do to help with packaging, please let
me know, either via email for a Github issue.
