New key procedure


maybe my question was too beginner, or keyring-maint points to /dev/null
;-), didn't get an answer to my question...

Could you please give me a hint how to get my new DSA public key into the

I guess just uploading it to the keyserver won't do, as anybody could do
that without proving identity...

Thanks a lot...

I still have a very old RSA keypair from 1996, so I decided to "upgrade"
to a DSA key. Is it OK if I send you a scan of my Austrian driver's
license, which contains the fingerprints of both my old and my new key in
the TIF File, then signed with my old and then with my new key?

It's this way I understand I have to do it according to the Developer's
reference manual, section 3.3 with 2.2. Right?



People often think of research as a form of development -- that it's
about doing exactly what you planned, doing it on time, and doing it
with resources that you said you'd use.  But if you're going to do
that, you have to know what you are doing, and if you know what you
are doing, it isn't really research."
