I did quite some key signing last week for my DSA-2048 key.  In the past
I regulary received complaints that people were not able to sign it.
Let's see whether this is still the case or if almost all folks will be
able to sign my key.  I guess they are.  After that make --enable-dsa2
the default.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
