no, if you already have the certificate, all you need to do is import it. (You will need the public key already in your keyring, but not the secret one. Your secret key is needed to *make* the revocation certificate, but once made, it affects only the *public* key. -- Brian Minton Caution: in case of rapture, this computer will be unoccupied!
