I think Niels' point was that SMTP & email transfer is inherently
insecure, and that having the council access an authenticated HTTPS
site to download it; or have their SSH keys added to the *.maemo.org
servers so they could SCP it off would be better.

Indeed, the latter should be done for the next council to avoid such
bottlenecks. Not asking for root, but user account access to perform
such extractions and run things is pretty essential.
