We hold our second Keysigning Party this month (our first was in 1996). A formal procedure will lead out the meeting, followed by a talk by Matthew Brodeur, followed by an informal keyid/fingerprint swapping. The purpose of the meeting is to authenticate each other, i.e. verify everybody's key ids and key fingerprints. Participants sign each others' keys offline.
