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 www.keyserver.net. 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:
#[-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----]

#[Comment: For info see http://www.gnupg.org]
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.
