Please submit your keys through the [https://keysigning.xyz/ following website] before Monday 1/2/2016

If you could send an email to [[User:Dns@dns.id.au|Daniel Sobey]] to give a rough idea on numbers.
  
By the time the Linux Australia AGM starts I would like people to be working on installing and testing various software. People who are there just for the discussion can then attend the AGM. I believe that coding is more important than voting as the people standing for office are all good.

=== When is it? ===
 +
Currently planning on running this on Tuesday night first slot. Keep an eye on [[Birds_of_a_Feather_sessions_(BoFs)]] for times.
  
==== Topics to consider ====
+
=== Things you need to before you leave for the conference. ===
 +
* Create a gpg key!
 +
* Submit it to https://keysigning.xyz before the due date of Monday night
 +
* Bring good quality photo id.
 +
** Good quality means passport, drivers licence, proof of age card
 +
** bad quality is library card etc.
 +
** There is no "rule" as to what is acceptable quality - it is up to each individual signer to determine what is "good enough" photo ID, how closely the names should match the UID(s) on the key, etc.
 +
* print out your fingerprint (not just the last 8 digits) so you can confirm that it is what you submitted
 +
* Have extra copies of your fingerprint to hand out, print it on your business card if you have one.
  
This list is broad and we will probably run out of time but perhaps we will have some shared chatroom or group post tag to continue the BoF online.
+
=== At the event ===
 +
Everyone will stand up the front show their photo id and read out their fingerprint.
 +
This is to assert two things:
 +
* The person matches the photo id
 +
* The key submitted is the key they actually own.
 +
* There should hopefully be printed copies of fingerprints. Cross off numbers in the fingerprint as they are read out if they match to be signed later.
  
* Learning about being a user of libre IM and federated social networking, looking at the feature sets - those not interested in running their own instances or IM servers can create accounts.
+
=== After the event ===
* Who to follow on these alternative social networks?
+
Sign the keys when you get home, no need to do it during the conference.
* Connecting/extending networks - bridging with plugins/bots, or working with common protocols?
+
[https://wiki.debian.org/caff caff] is a useful tool to sign and email.
* How to contribute? Which projects are looking for what help
+
* Moving between networks

Have a phone, tablet, or laptop to use to access the services (preferably all 3).

If you are a sysadmin have a laptop to access servers and install software.

+
Test out some relevant software in advance if you have time. Ideally be ready to spend a few minutes talking about the software.

+
If you want a virtual machine to test software contact Russell Coker <russell@coker.com.au> ASAP. Ideally send a GPG signed message with your ssh public key.

Revision as of 17:39, 30 January 2016

This year like all years we should have a key signing party. This is likely to be scheduled for one of the slots on Tuesday.

Please submit your keys through the following website before Monday 1/2/2016

I will try and have printed copies of the keys on the day but it would be useful to know how many copies to have printed. If you could send an email to Daniel Sobey to give a rough idea on numbers.

When is it?

Currently planning on running this on Tuesday night first slot. Keep an eye on Birds_of_a_Feather_sessions_(BoFs) for times.

Things you need to before you leave for the conference.

  • Create a gpg key!
  • Submit it to https://keysigning.xyz before the due date of Monday night
  • Bring good quality photo id.
    • Good quality means passport, drivers licence, proof of age card
    • bad quality is library card etc.
    • There is no "rule" as to what is acceptable quality - it is up to each individual signer to determine what is "good enough" photo ID, how closely the names should match the UID(s) on the key, etc.
  • print out your fingerprint (not just the last 8 digits) so you can confirm that it is what you submitted
  • Have extra copies of your fingerprint to hand out, print it on your business card if you have one.

At the event

Everyone will stand up the front show their photo id and read out their fingerprint. This is to assert two things:

  • The person matches the photo id
  • The key submitted is the key they actually own.
  • There should hopefully be printed copies of fingerprints. Cross off numbers in the fingerprint as they are read out if they match to be signed later.

After the event

Sign the keys when you get home, no need to do it during the conference. caff is a useful tool to sign and email.


Things to remember

  • The organizer could be evil, don't trust him, he has a beard.
  • sign only the keys you have verified to your own standard, trust no one.
  • don't trust the printouts, they could have been modified to mess with you and they could all be different.
  • don't trust all the keys, there may be a fake key with the same email address as someone else to see who is paying attention.
  • And remember [Responsible Behavior]
