Well, i don't think that there is a clear rule on this one. If you
want to follow the process as we did it most of the times then you
wouldn't need to downgrade and do a new release with a higher version
number (maybe 3.0 if you want a major release). In any case, the
release tags need to be removed.

How did you add it and to which file. I see a key at the end of the
file but it doesn't have a header (i.e., your name doesn't appear).
Maybe you did forget a --armor or something just went wrong? Also, it
might be just me and my set-up - could somebody else try whether the
KEYS file works and let us know for sure?

Yes, but that would be running against your local keyring which
contains your key already....
