At Linux.conf.au 2007 there was an organised GPG key signing session, where lots of people performed the GPG KeySigning dance. Afterwards quite a few (but less) people hung around in the foyer for the to perform the CAcert assurance dance.
I assured a few people, then joined a queue to be assured by one of the CAcert super assurers (and continued to assure people while waiting in the queue). This assurance bumped me up to the maximum number of points allowed for normal people. W00t!
I wasn't the only person from Catalyst to use this trick to get maximum points. As a result we now have 3 people able to allocate 35 points each. We also have a number of other people who can allocate less points than that. So if you're in the Wellington region and are interested in CAcert, drop by our offices (with suitable ID) and we can get you bootstrapped so you can start assuring people as well.
Well, Catalyst has now jumped on the CAcert bandwagon.
We already had one full assurer (Andrew McMillan) and a couple of other people (myself included) that had some points, but not enough to assure others. To fix this, Andrew organised an impromptu signing party. With a days notice we had 3 other full assurers (including a guy from Auckland who was in town for the day) come round to Catalyst for beer o'clock.
As a result, we now have enough assurers in house to make sure that any visitor (with the appropriate Government issued ID) can walk away with the ability to generate server SSL certificates. We don't have quite enough to allow people to become assurers. Yet.
