This Question seems to come up rather frequently and I didn't
find it in the FAQ list. 
So, assuming Brad's and Brian's permission, I suggest this 
entry to Nils:
Q: I have successfully generated a revocation certificate, but
   I don't understand how to send it to the key servers.

A: Most keyservers don't accept a 'bare' revocation certificate. 
   You have to import the certificate into gpg first:

   gpg --import my-revocation.asc

   then send the /key/ to the keyservers:

   gpg --keyserver --send-keys mykeyid
