Import the certificate into your keyring, then send your (now revoked)
key to a keyserver:
$ gpg --import < revocation.asc
$ gpg --send-key KEYID

A direct key signature, of type 0x20?

Search for a "rev:..." line after importing the certificate, with the
following command:
$ gpg --list-sig --with-colons KEYID
