I'm afraid Gunnar didn't take the habit of signing his mail and
side work, only his uploads of packages on Ubuntu repos. We'll have
to see if Keyring Maintainers would be okay with you endorsing his
new key relying on signed work he did in unbutu with his older

Not sure of their answer.

In general I'm not a fan of key changes as part of AM processes; it
is much better to continue with an established key if there is no
pressing reason to change. A well known 2048R key trumps a new 4096R
with no cross signatures.

I have now changed my default key to the old 2048R one in all places but mentors.debian.net. When trying to submit it there, I get:

"Key size too small. Need at least 4096 bits."
