Subject: Secure Open Source Project Guide

In light of events like this http://lwn.net/Articles/535149/ "China, 
GitHub and the man-in-the-middle (Greatfire)", we are thinking that a 
guide for securing open source projects is needed.  For example, 
recommending pull requests or commits be PGP signed are a few things 
we've discussed that could defend against a MITM attack inserting 
malicious code.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to where we could publish such a guide? 
  Perhaps the Linux Foundation?

I believe we have the resources on this mailing list to work through the 
details and put together a succinct guide that we could take to a wider 
audience.
