I can think of no good reason to be including these keys in the DC14
keysigning and in fact believe that it is actively harmful for us to be
encouraging people to continue propagating the use of 1024 bit keys. I
hope that all 6 keys are from people who have also generated larger
keys, but even if they're not I would like to request that they are
removed from the DC14 keysigning keyring.

People, move to larger keys. Yesterday. keyring-maint has been banging
this drum for some time. DebConf is the perfect time to make sure your
new key is well linked with the rest of Debian.
