I guess that you should choose a number-per-group which allows for
multiple experienced people in each group.

For example, with the Debconf6 keysigning there were ~150 participants.
If we had chosen a group size of 15 then we would reasonably expect that
at least the top 3-5 connected keys in each group would have plenty of

Of course the fact that the keysignings would be shorter would also
encourage more people to participate, as well.  At least that is my
belief, having been tempted to avoid the last couple myself...


Please keep me in the CC list thanks... :-)
