PPA signing keys?

Asked by Bryce Harrington on 2020-01-17

When I create new PPAs, I notice they are getting set up with an rsa1024 gpg signing key. I'd prefer a 4096 key, is there a way to adjust this?

Also, is the signing key one that LP generates itself for me? I'm not identifying where in the LP UI this key is controlled, and I'm not spotting it in my local key store.

FTR, this isn't causing me any problems presently (as far as I know), it's more a curiosity because I see other LP users (e.g. powersj) have rsa4096 keys on their ppas.

This is https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/1331914 and related bugs. I'm afraid we don't have a way to regenerate the old keys at this point - we need to work out the rollover bits first.

Yes, the signing key is one that LP generated for you a long time ago (they're per-PPA-owner, not per-PPA).

Can you help with this problem?
