Hi, just a very small  correction here - KDE  e.V. does not require
it, it is optional to sign their  FLA (a  trait shared among other
FLOSS projects, e.g. the Python  Foundation  acts similarly).

Thank you for the correction.  I thought they did from what I had read
Yet  another method to accomplish the same goal.

What would be the use of  people giving the option to share a CA or not.
the fact that, in case for  e.g. a licence update, you only have to
contact x%
of the  contributors?

It certainly reduces the burden. Otherwise you have to contact 100% of
contributors, not all of which may be easy to find if at all.

I don't mean to be morbid, but they may not even be alive.
