Hi Christian,

don't really know, at least this procedure has worked well for me twice.
If you would like to make a wiki page for this, feel free to do so, I'm
very busy ATM. Please don't forget mention what Till and Josh wrote:

      * Publish the key to hkp://pgp.mit.edu. Most of us are using this
        server by default I guess.
      * A new GPG Key is not really needed, as well as you don't have to
        revoke the old one. Nevertheless IMHO the email in the key
        should match the address you are using.

Thanks
Christoph
