Does he mean, 10 people on the mailing list
that comment on the draft?  That should be
easy to show.

I can understand there not being more than
10 people showing up to the meeting.  It's
very expensive to attend those things, and
this has been going on for a decade or so.

There are probably 10 implementations out
there...  Of the implementations I know:

Gpg, PGP Inc,
Cryptix, epointsystems, hushmail


(Thanks for the other comments, too).
