I have a few questions that I have so far been unable to find solutions to 
regarding Gnupg (gpg).  I decided to send a message here in hopes that I 
might find someone with enough experience with Gnupg to help me.

I have had several people ask me where to find my public key.  It seems that 
the default key server didn't propagate well enough so that other key servers 
knew my public key.  The key server I used was  Today, I 
uploaded (I think) to 5 other key servers to hopefully make my public key 
more easily found.

One user said that I could edit my comment section to include the public key 
server.  Sounded like a terrific idea, but how do I do this?  My current 
comment looks like this:
#[Version: GnuPG v1.0.6 (GNU/Linux)]
#[Comment: For info see]

Currently, I have Gpa (front end) and I don't see an option for editing 
comments.  The man page lists some options, however, I don't know how I would 
cause Gnupg to add this line *by default*.

Finally, as I went through the faq and various documentation for Gnupg, I 
didn't find a list of key servers.  Wouldn't it be a good idea to have 
several listed in these documents so users could upload (export?) their keys 
to more than one to help in key propagation?

Thank you for your time, help, and comments.  I'll check the list archive in 
a week or two for replies, else kindly CC me directly.

Best regards
