I am on the web at http://gpgMIT.com
and it is broken at 10 AM
Sunday December 23 2007. It will not accept FE2353A7 or 0xFE2353A7 or
anything so I can't join now. I will try again later today but Monday
may be the soonest I can get my new key to them. This is a big problem
if you need to do it, and a bigger problem if you thought you did but
you didn't. The web page is good because when it says it did you can see
if that is so.
(NB not gpg) seems to me to be working fine.
From my experience the best procedure is to create a key-pair
and ascii version on one's computer, then go to pgp.mit.com
and paste in the ascii version (in the "Submit a key" box)
This takes a minute or so to complete.
Then you can see if it has been registered
by entering one's key in the "Extract a key" box.
As far as I can see, you have to preface the key ID with 0x.
The kgpg command to export a key to pgp.mit.edu
did not seem to me to work.
It said "Sending the key" but this seemed to continue indefinitely.
As far as I can see, seahorse is the gnome equivalent of kgpg.
If that is so, it should be mentioned in the wiki page.
