Alright, I guess it's getting distributed how.  I successfully added it to=
keyserver.kjsl.com and pgp.mit.edu the way Manuel Samper showed me.

When I try to add it to the LDAP servers gpg just hangs.  I've tried with=
keyserver.pgp.com and pgp.surfnet.nl.  Here is my command-line:

gpg --keyserver keyserver.pgp.com --send-key 0x0FEBCEC3

Am I doing something wrong?

Also, what are LDAP and HKP severs?

Thanks a lot,
