Hi folks,

maybe you already know this, but on other lists it had caused
some confusion. So I wanna post it here.
It's an answer to a mail that I sent to pgp.mit.edu and also to
keyserver.net, but only pgp.mit.edu has replied to it.
The answer was addressed to me and to keyserver.net.

So IMHO it might be better, not to use keyserver.net at the moment,
because it seems that they do no updates with other keyservers.
