If you've still got a working GNU/Linux system, you can retrieve the list of
keys, if not just get them from a keyserver. All your signatures should be on
the keyserver. (Unless you're using lots of local signatures).
The important point is the ownertrust which is not stored within the public
keyring - so once the keys are imported from a keyserver, you may still have
a usable ownertrust database.

Get the keys themselves from keyservers. (Always better than stale keys from a
Copy the ownertrust or just re-run gpg --update-trustdb. It doesn't take too
long for gpg to calculate who you can trust from your signatures and show you
which keys you need to update.
