Description: If you've been collaborating to Debian as a non-DD and then you become a DD with uploading rights, you have to do some changes in all your configurations. Here you have the changes I did.
Create a new identity in your mail client with the appropiate From: header. For example, if you use mutt, in
Add an id to your gpg key:
$ gpg --edit-key your_key ... gpg> adduid Real name: your_real_name Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org Comment: ... Change (N)ame, (C)omment, (E)mail or (O)kay/(Q)uit? o ... gpg> save
If you wish, set primary uid:
$ gpg --edit-key your_key ... gpg> uid id_of_the_primary_key ... gpg> primary ... gpg> save
Send key to key server:
$ gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --send-key your_key
First, maybe you want to generate a new RSA pair of keys:
$ ssh-keygen Generating public/private rsa key pair. Enter file in which to save the key (/home/name/.ssh/id_rsa): /home/name/.ssh/id_rsa.debian ...
Then send it to email@example.com :
$ cat .ssh/id_rsa.debian.pub | gpg --clearsign | mail -s "Sending RSA key" firstname.lastname@example.org -- -f email@example.com
You'll receive a confirmation mail.
See https://db.debian.org/doc-mail.html for more info.
If you want that
id_rsa.debian is the key by default:
mv id_rsa id_rsa.other mv id_rsa.pub id_rsa.other.pub cp id_rsa.debian id_rsa cp id_rsa.debian.pub id_rsa.pub
When you connect to Debian machines, the fingreprint of the machine will be shown and you must check it in: https://db.debian.org/machines.cgi. Click on the machine you're interested in to see more details.
If you had a good config like this in
Host git.debian.org svn.debian.org alioth.debian.org User nick-guest
You only have to change your debian nick:
Host git.debian.org svn.debian.org alioth.debian.org User ddnick
If not, do previous config and change your remote branches. If you use
$ git remote -v alioth ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/git/collab-maint/your_package.git (fetch) alioth ssh://email@example.com/git/collab-maint/your_package.git (push) $ git remote rm alioth $ git remote add alioth ssh://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/xsol.git $ git remote -v alioth ssh://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/your_package.git (fetch) alioth ssh://git.debian.org/git/collab-maint/your_package.git (push)
[user] name = Your Name email = firstname.lastname@example.org

if you want, subscribe with your new mail and unsubscribe with the other one, but it's not necessary as lists.d.o are open.
