I think I might have done it now, using:

[rpmbuilder at karsites .gnupg]$ gpg --armor --export keith at > karsites-GPG-public-key-2011-03-18.asc
[rpmbuilder at karsites .gnupg]$ ls *.asc

Is there any particular convention for naming GPG public 
keys? Also does adding the public key creation date to the 
filename help?

I was thinking if I need to update the key later on, this 
would allow both the old key and the new key to exist in the 
user's GPG keyring database?

Kind Regards,

Keith Roberts
