I missed the selector when I was looking at the form. Thanks.

Things are moving ahead.
I'm going to resubmit my apps as soon as my signing keys get in.
I second that.

Will there be a possibility to get keys if you don't have a credit card? I don't have one (like most students in Belgium) and I am not sure using a relative's card would be okay.

I don't think there would be a big problem with this because I know some people who use their full real name on their credit card, and a short-version which is a lot different as their normal name....And I would believe that the web form doesn't compare names..but that's just a thought.

A credit card is required.
The form allows for the code signing keys to be sent to someone other than the credit card holder.
The card holder should be aware that they are responsible for use of the code signing keys.

I'm assuming the signing functionality is not built in to Flash Builder as it is in Eclipse. That said, I am on a Mac. I do not understand this line from the instructions on how to sign your app:
Initialize communication with the RIM® Signing Authority by using the blackberry-signer tool.
How does one do that? The only place I've found to download the signer authority tool is for an .exe which I can't use on a Mac. Is there anything detailing how to actually accomplish this task? I have my .csj file, but I have no idea how to move forward.

You can have someone that holds a Visa/Mastercard apply for the signing and put it in your name - it supports that. They're just responsible like was stated above. Buy 'em something from the vending machine for doing it.
Edit: My application for signing was completed within 8 hours. Signed up this morning, completed already.

The SDK contains, in the bin/ folder, both blackberry-signer and blackberry-keytool, as shell scripts that launch Java programs. I assume it's the same on Mac as on Linux and Windows, in that respect.
