What gpg produces with gen-revoke is just the revocation signature. To send it to a key server, you first need to import the public key (if you haven't already got it in your keyring), then import the revocation certificate you've just produced. Export the key (which now includes the revocation signature) and send it to the keyserver. -- Andrew McDonald E-mail:
