So it is ok to use a pgp5 created key (gpg works with it) to sign
packages ? I would like to use a pgp5 key because even if pgp5 can read
gpg-key signatures, I think it is impossible to use a gpg key with pgp5.
This is something I want to do because I have to work under Windows
sometimes (therefore forced to use pgp5).
