This is the right mailing list.  You can generate a certificate signing
request with gpgsm, e.g. gpgsm --output certificate.csr --gen-key.  If
you are looking to do more than that, you may wish to use OpenSSL
instead.  And if this doesn't fully answer your question, or you have
more questions, post back--this mailing list is friendly to newcomers.
