Indeed interesting to hear of new keyserver implementations, and having
a less homogeneous system should only be beneficial to the overall

Re SKS sync, this seems to be filed as a RFE/bug already at [0]. Does it
currently sync through the old PKS system / email?

Another RFE seems to be RFC6637 support - as the keyserver at the moment
seems unable to accept my key [1]. In addition, if you want the
keyserver to be included in the pool[2] I'd request a
/pks/lookup?op=stats implementation similar to SKS (and indeed GnuKS[3],
that is implemented with a Software: header)

Looking forwards to seeing how this keyserver evolves :)
