    • You have to create your GPG key. http://is.gd/4PTSm
      • You should create a revocation certificate, which says “Don't use this key any more!” - this is step 8 at the above page
    • Publish your key. http://is.gd/4PTUt
    • 19. Try sending an e-mail! - Either to someone else here, or adele-en@gnupp.de (a bot which replies to GPG mails!) See http://is.gd/4PTY8 for more!
  • 20. Stick around and after the break, we'll do key signing (which proves you know each other) and discuss what this means.
