Within more active pockets of the global free software community
(where OpenPGP signatures are used to authenticate release
artifacts, security advisories, election ballots, access controls
and so on) key signing parties are an extremely common occurrence...
I'd say much more so now than a decade ago, as the community has
grown continually and developed an increasing need to be able to
recognize one another's output in a verifiable manner,
asynchronously, distributed over great distances and across
loosely-related subcommunities/projects.
