Date Sun, 11 Mar 2007 13:45:22 GMT
Hi Craig,

I have been reading and
Googled about the public-key.  What I haven't been able to figure out is how
to create the public-key, is it "gpg --export --armor > KEYS", is it "gpg
--send-key", is it "gpg --export -a "<name>" > KEYS", etc.?  After when I do
this, how do I upload my public-key?  Is it 'gpg --send-key"?

I tried all those and still get the error -- so whatever is it that I am
missing or did wrong, the verification is failing and I have yet to find a
good description telling me how to address the error "public key not found".

Tonight, I will read through the links that you gave me; till then if
someone has a quick answer, please let me know.  I have placed everything
here: -- there is a
KEYS file that I placed here.

For someone who never done this before, this is all alien and time

Hi George,

You should upload your public GPG key to a well-known GPG server such as You will also need to put your key into the KEYS file
in the release directory.

Other resources you might look at include

and if all else fails, rtfm

With these resources, I was able to sign packages and verify them.  
One tricky part that I don't remember details of right away is the
requirement to sign your local key. You need to have your own key signed in
order to do some of the verification.
