Thanks Bertrand!

All: must the key be signed by someone other then me?  If so, can someone
from ASF do so?

Thanks.

I'll let others comment as to whether this is a usually accepted format. I
have the impression that I've always seen keys in the md5 or md5sum format.
i.e. what you'd get running:

  md5sum [fileName] > [fileName].md5

But I don't know if this is a requirement of the ASF.

(the command is sometimes named md5, not md5sum, depending on your platform)

People doing releases try to have their PGP keys signed by other ASF people,
in order to build a web of trust, see
http://cryptnet.net/fdp/crypto/keysigning_party/en/keysigning_party.html
for more info, or Henk's pages at
http://people.apache.org/~henkp/trust/

I don't think a key that is not signed by others is a problem w.r.t.
doing releases, but if you can get it signed at some point it's better IMHO.
