Since subscribing to this list and receiving mail that has been posted to it
my Newbie grasp of gpg has improved somewhat.
I have also taken advantage of the signed messages to get some practical
experience with using the gpg options.
My success-rate score is improving. By being encouraged to install and
start to use then 'mutt' email program, I now get signed messages reports
that automatically identify the key that was used in signing the messages.
However, my subsequent success rate in importing the identified keys has
varied. I fail when the keys in question are not on the keyservers that I
search routinely (not surprising!).
To make the issue more precise, my recent failures include the following
I have two requests/suggestions:
1) that a list of commonly-used keyservers be added to the gpg documentation; and
2) that people who sign their messages identify the keyserver on which their
public key can be found.
Public Key 72FDF9DF (DH/DSA)
