You are using --include-key-block; this is intended to be used by MUAs
to send the encryption key along with a signature to allow for immediate
encrypted reply.  This is similar to what has been done in S/MIME for
decades and a mitigation to the comedown of the keyservers.

MUAs may decide not to use this on mailing lists - if short mails are
important.  Or use it only with ECC keys.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
