Yes, as said above.

Thanks for helping with such stuff.

When faced with issues like this, i often look at
how other projects have done it. Primarily i follow
Apache HTTP Server, being the original project, and
therefore most likely doing the proper stuff. So see:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/site/trunk/dist/
Also APR because lots of old ASF hands there. So see:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/apr/site/trunk/dist
Apache Forrest will also give some clues, as when i
set it up as a top-level project i reviewed many other
existing practices.

There are also notes about KEYS and such in the
"Guide for new committers" and "Release signing"
http://apache.org/dev/

Also Henk's guide says to put your own key at
people.apache.org:~/.pgpkey

That is fine as a temporary measure, and will bring that
static file up-to-date.
