BLU Keysigning Party - FOLLOWUP - script to simplify signing and emailing keys

Hi, everyone.

Attached is a bash script I wrote a few years ago to automate
much of the process of signing and emailing keys after a
keysigning event.

The script takes a list of keyids that you want to sign and email,
steps you through the process of signing each key, and generates
a BSMTP shar archive that, when run as a shell script, feeds the
email messages into "/usr/sbin/sendmail -v -bs" to send them.

If you cannot run the script on a valid mail server, you can copy
and paste each message into your email client to send.

To use the script, first edit the settings at the top to change your
name and email address; by default it's set to

    John Doe <john.doe-hcDgGtZH8xNBDgjK7y7TUQ at>

For future BLU keysignings, also edit the event date. For
other, non-BLU keysigning events, edit the event description.
