   First sponsored uploads were for hwb back in 2007 and ttylog back in 2008.

   The Keysigning Offers list [1] does not show anyone in my immediate
area but there are people listed who are 'nearby', with the closest
(from what I've seen so far) being about 150 miles away.

   In that he, Jeff Teunissen, did not respond to several emails I
sent him back in April.  There were four others listed for nearby
states that I also emailed at the same time & also did not receive
responses:   Michael Gilbert, Carlo Segre,  Dirk Eddelbuettel,
Matthieu Delahaye.  Note that I received bounce emails on that last
one, with the error being:  550 Unrouteable address (in reply to RCPT
TO command)

   The emails were asking if they might be going to the 2012
Penguicon[2], which is a combined Linux & Science Fiction convention
held every year in the metro Detroit area.  It generally has a key
signing session of some sort and in this case did end up having one.


>> It is signed by two non-DDs,

   That resulted from the key signing session held at the 2012 Penguicon [2].


>> plus CACert.org.

    Received the email notification about that back in February.2012.

   Southeast Michigan, USA:  Detroit metropolitan area.

   Is it recommended that I keep on attempting to get in contact with
those who are listed as being nearby?
