    I am not able to do this. I have been trying to reply to email sent 
to me with the file  fedora-icla-karl.txt which I added the I Agree and 
Karl Larsen to. The new Instructions show how to do this with Gedit and 
I used that. The resulting file is very different than the one made 
directly with gpg. Here is the new file:

    You and the Project hereby accept and agree to the following terms 
and conditions:

    1. Contributors and Contributions.

       A. The Project and any individual or legal entity that
       voluntarily submits to the Project a Contribution are
       collectively addressed herein as "Contributors". For legal
       entities, the entity making a Contribution and all other
       entities that control, are controlled by, or are under common
       control with that entity are considered to be a single
       Contributor. For the purposes of this definition, "control"
       means (i) the power, direct or indirect, to cause the direction
       or management of such entity, whether by contract or otherwise,
       or (ii) ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the
       outstanding shares, or (iii) beneficial ownership of such

       B. A "Contribution" is any original work, including any
       modification or addition to an existing work, that has been
       submitted for inclusion in, or documentation of, any of the
       products owned or managed by the Project, where such work
       originates from that particular Contributor or from some entity
       acting on behalf of that Contributor.

       C. A Contribution is "submitted" when any form of electronic,
       verbal, or written communication is sent to the Project,
       including but not limited to communication on electronic
       mailing lists, source code control systems, and issue tracking
       systems that are managed by, or on behalf of, the Project for
       the purpose of discussing or improving software or
       documentation of the Project, but excluding communication that
       is conspicuously marked or otherwise designated in writing by
       you as "Not a Contribution."

       D. Any Contribution submitted by you to the Project shall be
       under the terms and conditions of this License, without any
       additional terms or conditions, unless you explicitly state
       otherwise in the submission.

    2. Contributor Grant of License. You hereby grant to Red Hat,
       Inc., on behalf of the Project, and to recipients of software
       distributed by the Project:

       (a) a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up,
       royalty free, irrevocable copyright license to reproduce,
       prepare derivative works of, publicly display, publicly
       perform, sublicense, and distribute your Contribution and such
       derivative works; and,

       (b) a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, fully paid-up,
       royalty free, irrevocable (subject to Section 3) patent license
       to make, have made, use, offer to sell, sell, import, and
       otherwise transfer your Contribution and derivative works
       thereof, where such license applies only to those patent claims
       licensable by you that are necessarily infringed by your
       Contribution alone or by combination of your Contribution with
       the work to which you submitted the Contribution.  Except for
       the license granted in this section, you reserve all right,
       title and interest in and to your Contributions.

    3. Reciprocity. As of the date any such litigation is filed, your
       patent grant shall immediately terminate with respect to any
       party that institutes patent litigation against you (including
       a cross-claim or counterclaim in a lawsuit) alleging that your
       Contribution, or the work to which you have contributed,
       constitutes direct or contributory patent infringement.

    4. You represent that you are legally entitled to grant the above
       license. If your employer(s) has rights to intellectual
       property that you create that includes your Contributions, you
       represent that you have received permission to make
       Contributions on behalf of that employer, that your employer
       has waived such rights for your Contributions to the Project,
       or that your employer has executed a separate Corporate CLA
       with the Project.

    5. You represent that each of your Contributions is your original
       creation (see section 7 for submissions on behalf of others).
       You represent that your Contribution submission(s) include
       complete details of any third-party license or other
       restriction (including, but not limited to, related copyright,
       patents and trademarks) of which you are personally aware and
       which are associated with any part of your Contribution.

    6. You are not expected to provide support for your Contributions,
       except to the extent you desire to provide support. You may
       provide support for free, for a fee, or not at all. Your
       Contributions are provided on an "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT
       WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, either express or
       implied, including, without limitation, any warranties or

    7. Should you wish to submit work that is not your original
       creation, you may submit it to the Project separately from any
       Contribution, identifying the complete details of its source
       and of any license or other restriction (including, but not
       limited to, related patents, trademarks, and license
       agreements) of which you are personally aware, and
       conspicuously marking the work as "Submitted on behalf of a
       third-party: [named here]".

    8. You agree to notify the Project of any facts or circumstances
       of which you become aware that would make these representations
       inaccurate in any respect.

    9. The Project is under no obligations to accept and include every

    When I reply to the email I put this file in as an Attachment as the 
Instructions say on Thunderbird but the return message says it didn't
