Who gets mails sent do sysadmin@?

After account creation we should reply with a PGP/MIME signed email 
containing the host keys of all SugarLabs hosts (or at least the ones 
the account will have access to). We should also replicate that list as 
/etc/ssh/ssh_known_hosts on all our hosts.

BTW: Can we (in a few weeks that is, not now) set up a slave LDAP (or 
copy an export in shadow database format if that's possible) on bender 
and manage bender / build slave accounts centrally (group membership, 
some fancy LDAP stuff)? Home directories can be created on first login 
by pam_mkhomedir. Not sure yet how to transfer ssh keys, though.

PS: We should do some PGP key signing on next SugarCamp. I forgot to do 
it at the Paris one. :(
