There are 2 sets of upload locations:

- GPG keys managed by FSF sysadmins / address@hidden

- SSH keys managed through the Savannah web
  interface (Savane has a cron to check uploaded files and rename them
  if they are not/badly signed, but we don't use it at Savannah).

  However Savannah also offer users to upload GPG keys, and they are
  available/downloadable from the user page.

  It's worth noting that, given that GPG's ascii-armored dump is
  pretty opaque, some people upload more than their own public key
  there (keys that signed the keys, keys that also match the user's
  nickname, etc.).

  What stopped working at a point is the generation of the project
  keyring (the above GPG key for all project members), which I had
  fixed (available from the project member list).

Let me know if we can help.
