Yes, but as you IIRC said to me that direct-method usage is fine and
Wiktor's WKD checker gave also a green light for the direct-method
for my GitHub set-up, you see that it is still not working with GnuPG.

Thanks for the kind offer, like I said I will not use the advanced-method,
because it has a purpose, which I like to test and see and then if everything
works as expected I will also tell why not an advanced-method.
