The Hangout is limited to 9 participants, so please join the Hangout only if you plan to ask questions or otherwise be actively involved in the voice and video aspects of the conversation.

GPG key signing

During the summit there will be the possibility to sign each others GPG keys. If you want to have your keys signed, please take along:

  • Key printouts with the following:
    • your first name and last name
    • the e-mail adresses and other id's you would like to have signed
    • the key-id and encryption method (eg: 4096R/1A2B3C4D)
    • key fingerprint (visible with: gpg -v --fingerprint 1A2B3C4D)
  • Some official ID with photo (e.g. Passport or drivers license)

Prepared like this, it should not take more then 15 minutes to cross-sign the keys of everybody who is interested. More info can be found at: Debian Wiki on Keysigning. Some handy scripts for making mass-signing more easy can be found in the Signing party Debian package.
