Thanks for the HOWTO.

After I have looked throug some of the pages from the HOWTO, I have been 
thinking more about keysigning this weekend. We are getten quite packed, and 
to get this a little more organiced, I'm now announcing a centraliced 
keysigning party on Saturday.

The structure of the keysigning party is going to be like the centraliced 
model,  described here:

I'm thinking of making a list like the one in this link
or maybe a list like the output from gpg --fingerprint. 
What do you prefere ?

To make this list, I need the following information for the attendees:

Key ID
Key Owner
Key Fingerprint
Key Size
Key Type

If you have your own key in your key ring, you can get all of this information 
by running:

$ gpg --fingerprint your.mail@address.org
pub  1024D/992A4B3F 2005-01-01 John Doe <your.mail@address.org>
     Key fingerprint =  1EC8 B1E3 152D FC5C 209F 77EB FA93 0983 993A 4B4F
sub  1024g/AEDC5435 2005-01-01

On the pub line,  1024 is the "Key Size", D, I think stands for DSA, thats the 
"Key Type". After the / is the "Key ID", then the date for when the key was 
created. Then follows the "Key Owner". On the next line is the "Key 

If all people that wants to attend the keysigning party could send me this 
information before, lets say Saturday at 10.00, I can put together a list of 
all the keys to lunch, and the signing party can be done right after that. 
You do not need to wait until Saturday to send me our information, this is 
only a deadline, send the info as soon as possible.

I'll make a webpage to put the information on. 

I have not organiced a keysigning party before, any improvement/suggestions 
are welcome.
