Changing email addresses
Thu Nov 22 12:45:02 2001
I am relatively new to the concepts represented by GnuPG, and don't
get a chance to use them very often.
Back in August I created a keypair and sent them to a keyserver. Now
I've changed email addresses, and am not sure whether I've done the
correct thing with my keypair.
I read the GnuPG Privacy Handbook, and decided I should revoke the
signature on my key with the "revsig" command. Then I added a user id
with the "adduid" command (using my new email addr) and re-exported
the key to the keyserver. My old uid was "Ben Logan
<email@example.com>" and my new one is "Ben Logan
Did I do the right thing?
