Great. I hadn't previously been thru an email address change involving
pgp. Looks like the situation is well covered.

My current key has 768 bits. I'll start using a 1024 bit key.
I don't think there's any problem with just changing over at

and uploading packages, and the upload site end isn't (yet)
verifying pgp signatures.
