Re: Orphaning packages maintained by Scott K. Ellis (email@example.com)
I have a very old public key (legacy PGP 2.6), which I was having problems
uploading with before the security issues with Debian's machines. I really
need to get a new key generated and signed (anyone near enough to Charlotte,
NC to meet up with me? I'm willing to make a bit of a road trip if
necessary.) I don't consider myself departed from the project, but I
certainly don't mind if people NMU or adopt my packages at this time, at
least until I can get everything fixed with my public key.
