Thank you. I did have some concern that my NM application would be
rejected because of my old key. It is a 1024 bit key and it's only
signed by a single person. I saw that someone else had his application
rejected for what looks to be a reason which is similar to my
situation. See . My new key however is 4096 bits and signed by
several people to include one DD. I had trouble convincing these same
people to sign my old key.
