Why arent the new public keys sent automatically to a key server (i.e ) at creation time ?

I agree. I have found several keys can not be found on the keyservers.
really think they should be put on the public servers. Some keys are
available and other are not.

This is the one I just found.

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys d986a842

There are others that are not on the public servers. I do not remember
them all. The other two that I had on my more recent list are now

Only the ones manually uploaded by people are available.

They were not automatically uploaded, since especially due to the home:*
directories there are quite many of them.

(But you can always upload them yourselfes.)

But I do not have access to d986a842.

My key is

pub 1024D/277BDDE6 2001-05-31
uid Boyd Lynn Gerber (CEO/Owner ZENEZ)
sub 1024g/FF185552 2001-05-31

I did an osc co on

drwxr-xr-x 249 gerberb zenez 12288 2008-02-11 22:24 devel:languages:perl/
drwxr-xr-x 137 gerberb zenez 4096 2008-02-11 22:43
drwxr-xr-x 6 gerberb zenez 4096 2008-02-11 22:46 games:roleplay/
drwxr-xr-x 11 gerberb zenez 4096 2008-02-11 22:03 home:gerberb/
drwxr-xr-x 72 gerberb zenez 4096 2008-02-11 23:10 server:mail/

I have the python libraries I use and work on in /home:gerberb because I
do not have access to the devel:languages:python. So I build them in my
local directory. The ones in the python and server:mail are out of date.
So I am trying to created updated packages that I can then email to the
proper person in-charge of them to update. I am having problems with the
gpg keys on the BS and not being able to get them. That is why I think
they should be uploaded. There are work arounds but I really prefer to
build local. So that is where the problem lies. Not all BS keys are
publically available.

The work around for local build is the --no-verify, which in my opinion is
a security risk. I would really like to have the keys.
