And thank you for that Matt.  It should be fun.

Do you want folks to send you their keys or just their key info (the
output of gpg --fingerprint)?  The wiki says send your key, but the
command used won't send the key, just the key info.

If you haven't seen it before, I'd recommend giving a look at the
"Efficient Group Key Signing Method" by Len Sassaman and Phil
Zimmermann, documented at http://sion.quickie.net/keysigning.txt

It cuts a lot of the tediousness out of a key signing involving more
than just a few people.

I'd be glad to offer any help you might want in preparing for this.
I've only helped organize a few key signings, but I've been using and
following PGP for what seems like ages. :)
