Are you intending to work on the old Majordomo1 code base or the new
Majordomo2 code? They are completely different.
I have many ideas on how to deal with signing command message, and
additionally dealing with signed postings. Unfortunately there hasn't been
a good cryptographic library available for us to use (as I mention in the
message that you quoted). Until there is one, I really can't see how you
plan to go about doing this.
BTW, moderation is already (in Mj2) done in a manner that is
cryptographically secure. The moderator can return a one time token to
approve a message. Per-approval or editing of approved messages still has
to be done the old way.
