Migrating to GPG - A mini-HOWTO

How to switch to GnuPG for developers..a very brief mini-HOWTO

# gpg-rsa instead of rsareffor non-us developers
apt-get install gnupg gpg-rsaref gpg-idea 
# whips up a ~/.gnupg directory and populates with skel files
gpg --list-keys 

# add these lines to ~/.gnupg/options
# -------------------
load-extension rsaref
load-extension idea
# if you use the debian-keyring package
keyring /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.pgp
keyring /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg
# gpg's keyrings
keyring ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg
secret-keyring ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg
# your old pgp keyrings
keyring ~/.pgp/pubring.pgp
secret-keyring ~/.pgp/secring.pgp
# -------------------

Build your packages with '[dpkg-buildpackage|debuild] -sgpg -pgpg', change
your .muttrc (or whatever) to use gpg, and you're set!
