Since you're not uploading a new key, only a change to a key that's already in
the ring, you should be able to get away with uploading straight to the
$ ggp --keyserver keyring.debian.org --send-keys <key ID>
As long as the new uid is signed with your key (the default when adding new
uids), there's a valid chain of trust and you will be able to use the new uid
for uploads, even if the new uid isn't signed by other developers.
