Then you really need to upload it from a secure machine that has your secret key.

The reason for enforcing signatures is so that the sponsor can be sure
that the package really was prepared by you.

If you cannot trust the machine you are on, can you connect to a secure machine?

If you cannot, you will need to delay the upload until you can.

Do not compromise your secret key for the sake of this upload.
