Could you contact me on irc so we can figure out which problem you

minimal PGP check
which is done by exim now.
Tim said he never even received the challenge mail. That's unlikely
be caused by the PGP check on the advocate@ address.
I am having PGP problems as well, though. I thought I'd done the
appropriate cross-signing now, and uploaded my key to the Debian
keyserver, but it looks like my reply to the advocacy message has
failed the key checking:
You tried to approve the application of a New Maintainer (NM)
However, there were problems with the verification of your GPG
Error: Unable to check the signature or the signature was invalid:

So I'm a bit confused now about what more I can do. I did the
signature check that Peter told me about a couple of weeks ago, and
uploaded the new public key. Perhaps it hasn't made its way into the
keyring package yet.
