I foolishly signed a key I had not verified well, and the signed version
is on a keyserver. How can I unsign it?
I have tried the following (changing the key ID to 0xDEADBEEF):
> C:\Users\chesky>"c:\Program Files\GNU\GnuPG\gpg.exe" --edit-key 0xDEADBEEF
> gpg (GnuPG) 1.4.9; Copyright (C) 2008 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

> pub 4096R/DEADBEEF created: 2008-08-27 expires: 2010-08-27 usage: SCEA
> trust: undefined validity: full
> [ full ] (1). Mister Magoo <mister at magoo.not>
> Command> revsig
> You have signed these user IDs on key DEADBEEF:
> Mister Magoo <mister at magoo.not>
That’s not all that’s supposed to happen, is it?
