Should keys.gnupg.net continue to be used or not? What is the best
generic recommendation these days? The announce-gen script in gnulib
 still uses '--keyserver keys.gnupg.net', and its output ends up in
many release announcements of GNU projects. Is there anything better
than that? Of course, how to locate PGP keys for a single individual
will differ, but it would be nice if there were a best recommended
approach, which is what keys.gnupg.net has been (is?) as far as I can
