[Project_owners] code-signing certificates from mozdev?

Thanks for clarifying.  Our immediate concern with setting up a cert is
to make sure that we can create secure logins on the site.  For mozdev
to set up a system of providing certificates for code signing for
projects would be a different matter.  If this is something the project
owners decide that we want, we can look into doing it.  My initial
thought is that this will require some resources dedicated to this
effort to review and approve projects since we are in effect vouching
for a project's code once we set this up.
