I lost my ssh keys that i used to create my account at Fedora Account System when I was reading wiki on how to work on l10n project and then I read about making an account on l18n. When i went there http://i18n.redhat.com/cgi-bin/i18n-signup/ . In the ssh key section there is a tip to create new ssh key

Your public ssh key < 1000 characters. Use ssh-keygen -t dsa.

The problem is this that the newbie doesn't know that ssh-keygen -t dsa is used to creat a new pair of ssh keys. At this point the newbie has followed all the foundation instructions and have already ssh and gpg keys on his system but after following this command he destroy his existing keys and make a new pair. Now while connecting to CVS he got permission denied error because the ssh key that exists in his sysem is different then the key that he uploaded in his Fedora Account System.

So, kindly make the tip clear for newbies and write down the command to first check if he has already an existing public ssh key.
