Getting all people who have previously signed your key to revoke their signature on your key would be a good idea, to remove your lost key from the web of trust. Those people should put 'lost secret key' in the reason for revocation field.

Admittedly, this is not critical as the secret key is not compromised. But it helps preventing people from using this key to send you encrypted mail (as if anybody ever did...)

Be sure that you do a good job in convincing the signees of your key, that you are really the one that is telling them that the secret key is lost!

So sign all the requests about revoking signatures with your new and trusted key!
