File an RT ticket requesting your 1024D DM key is replaced with your
4096R one, then apply to be a DD with the 4096R key.


Your new key looks to be signed by several existing DD keys, so you
should be good to go.

You might still want to point out to your AM that you've changed key in
case they're searching for uploads by key instead of email address/name.
