I followed the procedure in the debian-keyring README file. Remember
to sign your DSA key with the RSA key, of course, then send it in.
Here are the relevant sentences:
Updating your key(s)
If your key has been updated, you should send your update to
Signing your GPG key with your PGP one
If you already have a PGP key, but only now made a GPG key, you must
sign your GPG key with your PGP one. This can be done as follows:
o Get the gpg-rsa (or gpg-rsaref, if you live in the US) and gpg-idea
packages and install them.
o Sign your GPG key with your PGP key:
gpg --load-extension rsa --load-extension idea \
--secret-keyring ~/.pgp/secring.pgp \
--default-key 'Your PGP ID' --sign-key 'Your GPG ID'
I think dinstall uses the keyring from the latest debian-keyring
package, so your GnuPG key won't work until your new key is inserted
into the official keyring and uploaded. This usually happens once or
twice a month.
In the meantime, you could get GnuPG to use the RSA key for signing,
so you don't have to remember to specify the needed options for using
