Okay, we're getting into a discussion about public keys.
The only thing mentioned to me concerning this when being
made maintainer was that it was for push rights.  I don't
need or want push rights because any future patches to
the AviSynth demuxer will be on the smaller side - if not
smallest, like the patch in question here - and very few
and far between (months or even years at the level of
maturity the demuxer has now*), making it pointless for me
to have that ability.  And while it may be more likely for
me to submit patches to things I don't maintain in that
span of time, I would be even stricter about it than the
docs are and refuse to push patches I submit to areas I
don't maintain.

*I can prognosticate a little here: the only two
conceivable changes that may be needed in the future
are in the event of AviSynth+ gaining Linux/OSX support
and finally displacing AvxSynth (requires getting rid of
some ifdefs and changing the lib name AVISYNTH_LIB points to)
and the off chance that the Windows builds of AviSynth+ might
eventually do something useful with UTF-8, in which case the
ifdef for that would need to be altered or removed.  Other
than some hypothetical grand API shift on our side (the
fixing of which is not in my wheelhouse; I'd merely be testing
and approving the patch(es) which update(s) the demuxer to
use said newer APIs), that's all.

The use of a public key to verify individual commits reads
to me, again, as though it only applies to being able to
verify commits pushed to a repository by those with push
