I think you forgot using "-a" parameter when running gpg tool.  You need do run:

  $ gpg -a --sign fedora-icla-karl.txt

If you forget "-a", the result will be a .gpg file. The "-a" parameter
 is to generate a ASCII armor (text) signed file.

Yes. The file *need* to be a ASCII armor signed file with .asc extension.

Well. I ran command above and got a .asc file, so I think all it's working well.

Have you access on IRC? If yes, what is your nick? Join the
