How I just imported my signed keys

First I set up GPG Agent. To do that I followed the Gentoo documentation, with particular attention paid to section 4 and configuration files.

Within ~/Maildir/cur/ I just ran:

for thing in `grep -l -i 'Subject: .*signed'`           
gpg --decrypt < $thing | gpg --import

As it happens, I synchronized all my email using Dovecot dsync, so I could do this on my laptop.

Then I just ran:

gpg --keyserver --send-keys 37E1C17570096AD1
gpg --keyserver --send-keys EC4B033C70096AD1

to upload those to the keyservers.

Now I can delete all those three month old caff emails. Sorry everyone.
