sure - some people cannot attend for some reason.
and who says that all people who take part in
the KSP need to be accomodated to attend? ;-)

there is always a problem.
and we cannot solve them all.

however, i suggest to take out both the key signing
and the cacert assurances from the conference
and simply do them at the free beer event.
then at least the KSP would not interfere with
the talks and development work at the conference.

there is too much happening during the conference, anyway.
so at least take some time for ksp+cacert in the evening.
besides, these are social events which brings people together -
so shouldnt people have a beer after that together?
sounds like a perfect combination to me.
