Key consistency checks
This requirement looks incomplete.
- no UID found that fully satisfies requirements
Every Debian member needs a GPG key of sufficient strength. In addition, all keys should be certified
so we can link them to a real-world identity.
The normal requirements are:
- the key should be type RSA and version 4 or greater
- the key should have the sign, certify and encrypt capabilities (subkeys are encouraged)
- the primary cryptographic material should be at least 4096 bits
- the UIDs used by an applicant to work in the project should be signed by at least two existing Debian members (1 for DM applications)
- as an alternative to the previous requirement, the key can be endorsed (see link at the bottom of the page) by multiple Debian Members (the number of required endorsements depends on the endorsement's age and nature)
- pseudonyms or anonymity are acceptable in certain circumstances
If the key does not meet these requirements, and you would struggle to create one which does, contact Front Desk.
Keys are first searched in
hkps://keyring.debian.org. If no key is found,
then the key will be imported from
hkps://keyserver.ubuntu.com/. Please ensure that you
have sent your key to Ubuntu's key server. Sending public keys to keyring.debian.org will only work if your
key is already in Debian's keyring and will only be taken into account after the Keyring Maintainers
updated it. For Debian Maintainers and Developers, please remember to send your key to both servers.
This check will be approved manually by Front Desk as the application progresses.

I have been working with Joshua Peisach <firstname.lastname@example.org>,
(key 226D0F1861081C139D899D7741C3D4189AFEDB5A) over the last year
within the Debian Cinnamon Team. He is heavily involved in the
Ubuntu Cinnamon remix, and regularly contributes back to Debian
He recently started working with gpg, so his keys are new and don't have
the necessary signatures, but I have checked that he can encrypt,
decrypt, and sign messages using the key listed above.
Due to the long-term interactions we had, I'm convinced that Joshua Peisach as they
present themselves on nm.debian.org is the rightful owner of both email
email@example.com and GPG key 226D 0F18 6108 1C13 9D89 9D77 41C3 D418 9AFE DB5A.

||Hi Joshua. Thanks for applying to become DM. However, your key needs to be signed (or strongly endorsed) by at least one DD. Do you have any plans for that?
