My key is widely available on public key servers, and also is on the
Debian keyring. If you check my email's signature your client will tell
you what key to fetch, and after fetching it your client will be able to
validate the signature and present the fingerprint. GnuPG can be
configured to do this automatically. You still need to independently
verify the signature out of band (or through the web of trust); there is
no possible shortcut to this. There is no need for me to include my key
or fingerprint separately - that would be redundant.

I'm not sure I follow. If the issue doesn't qualify as a bug (or a
wishlist bug) then by definition there is no acceptable code change to
make for the package, so what exactly would you be requesting?

If you want to ask for confirmation if the bug is valid, then the best
thing to do is to file it (having done some reasonable research first,
which it seems you have) with as much objective information as possible,
and make sure the report reaches the original authors and is relevant to
them (eg. if the code in question originates from Debian, make sure the
bug exists in Debian's bug tracker and is described in terms of Debian,
not Mint). You will then be able to get confirmation of validity
directly from the source.
