Just to clarify a typo/line wrap problem I noticed with these excellent
instructions, the export command needs an ID if you have multiple keys:

For me,  "gpg --list-keys" gives:

I want to send Chris the public key for my shiny new ID (41E27BAA), so I
export like this:

gpg --armor --output /tmp/my-public-key --export 41E27BAA


Again, a big thanks to Chris for organizing this keysigning!
