yep. That's basically my plan. So far only ~14 people have sent me
keys, so even bicycle chain won't take but a few minutes. I'll email
everyone who has sent keys, and fedora-devel, the instructions early
next week for getting the plaintext list of keys, the keyring I've
compiled from the sent fingerprints, the SHAx sums and the rest.
I've compiled the list of keys for the FUDCon keysigning. These 20
are whom I have. If you're not on this list, and still want to
participate, you may, details to follow.

See the URL above for the process. Before the keysigning, you _must_
download a copy of
and verify that your key is correct on there. You'll be asked at the
keysigning to confirm that your key is correct in that file.
Second, you must run both sha1sum and md5sum on the
fudcon-keysigning.txt file, and validate that it in fact matches:
At the keysigning, I'll read these values. Everyone confirms they
match, therefore we know your key as listed in the keyring is what
everyone expects it to be. Then we each, in order, show our IDs for
everyone to validate, and then each person can decide if they want to
sign that person's key.
After the keysigning, you can use a tool like caff from the pgp-tools
package to sign each person's key and mail it to them.
I'll see you all next Saturday!
