Most people who indulge in this sort of thing regularly (so, Debian
developers, basically ;-) do the email confirmation by emailing the
signatures in an encrypted mail to each signed address.

caff is a nice tool for doing this, which is packaged in Debian and
chums in the 'signing-party' package -- I think the RedHat camp have it
in a 'pgp-tools' package.

That being the case, all you need for key signing is government issued
photo ID (some people only accept a passport), and some key slips that
have the fingerprint of your key, along with email addresses you want
signed -- so, in your case the output of:

   gpg --fingerprint 07543718

Cheers, Phil.
