    I have been looking at what has been happening and decided to see 
where I got my information on your web site. Below are where I found 
instructions for getting a key:

    Next I want to check out the CLA problem because it can be that this 
problem is a BUG for Fedora 8. Since most of you got this step done with 
zero trouble on earlier versions of Fedora it smells like something 

    Well you ask for and get a file attached to an email that is:


and you are instructed to write:

    If you agree to these terms and conditions, type "I agree" here: I agree
    Enter your full name here: Karl Larsen

As you can see I did that. Then your supposed to sign this file with 
your GPG key using a gpg call. Here is what happened.

    At first it would error out with a complaint that a default was 
wrong. This went on for some time but then it seemed to work. It asked 
me for my password which I gave it and it made a new file that looks 
like this:


This file is not what Fedora wants. I sent it in and it sent an error 
email back. This file is a binary file now and I have no way to read it.

    The file that is expected is fedora-icla-karl.asc but on F8 I don't 
get that.

    A question. Does anyone get the desired file on F8? This might be 
another problem.
