Import the revocation certificate on top of the key you want to revoke and
send the changed key. Import the certificate like any other key.
Make sure the old key to be revoked is still in your public keyring.
Import the revocation certificate into your public keyring. That will
overwrite the old key with the revocation certificate. The key is now revoked
and can be sent to keyservers - causing the copies on the keyservers to
import the certificate and show as revoked.
gpg --import revoke.asc
gpg --send-key keyid
