Dear list readers

IMHO, best is to start and see what total amount would be committed by
donators. See email from Markus below.

Additional remarques:
Related to your commitment you can add your conditions for "done", thus
result will be a kind of "requirements sheet"

Actual status: 5 people committed for 220$

Today there are good and free PDF readers available as an alternative to
the large proprietary reader [1]. One missing feature though, is support
for digital signatures.

I am reaching out on this mailing list as I know many people with
knowledge of PKI and an interest in digital signatures are available here.

There is a ticket available in Poppler [2] for implementing support for
verifying digital signatures and during the last five years some initial
patches as been developed [3]. Poppler is the PDF rendering library used
by many PDF applications such as Evince and Okular.

Recently some people has started to donate money at FreedomSponsors to
get the implementation going:

So if you want to step up and do the implementation or to support those
that will by placing a bounty at FreedomSponsors, now is a good time :)
