As you might have noticed, the original source of Web-Of-Trust Graph information went offline and probably won't come back. As a result also pathfinders like the one of Henk P. Penning are stuck in February 2012.

As I always found this kind of statistics interesting I've hacked the pks2wot python script that is part of the wotsap package to use normal hkp instead of the pks client and running it against my own sks keyserver which seems to work good enough to do a weekly dump of the current web-of-trust which can be found at I'd be happy to hear if this is useful to anyone besides myself.

Glad to see the Wotsap data being built again. I talked to Jorgen earlier this year and he was sad that he didn't have the resources to run it himself.

Does this mean that Henk could switch his site over to use this data source instead? I really liked that site, it'd be nice to see it up to date again :)

Robert: If Henk is interested, he's more than welcome to switch over to this data bringing the site back up-to-date. I should probably drop him an email.

This is VERY useful, thanks for doing this.

Please convince Henk Penning to use this data.

Also, if you can publish this script somewhere that would be great, maybe Henk can run integrate this directly in to his informational pages!

Christoph did a great job.
Site is now using the fresh data he provided.
Thanks a lot!
