https://launchpad.net/people/jrhakr/+editsshkeys

Then to add your feed, first install the "bzr" and "paramiko" packages if you haven't done so already:

$sudo apt-get install bzr python-paramiko

Next, check out the configuration files from the launchpad bzr tree.

$ bzr checkout sftp://jrhakr@bazaar.launchpad.net/~planet-ubuntu/config/main planet-ubuntu
$ cd planet-ubuntu/

Next, place your hackergotchiFootNote(Your hackergotchi should be scaled to roughly 100x100 pixels, give or take.) into the heads/ subdirectory:

$ cp ~/hackergotchi.png heads/jrhakr.png
$ bzr add heads/jrhakr.png

Once you've done that, add a stanza like the following to the end of the config.ini file:

[http://blog.example.com/~jrhakr/feed?category=ubuntu-only]
name = J. Random Hacker
face = jrhakr.png
nick = jrhakr

Warning /!\ Please use your real name at least somewhere in the 'name' field.

When you are satisfied that your entry is correct, it's time to check in your changes:

$ bzr commit -m "Added jrhakr to Planet Ubuntu"

Warning /!\ Please note that Planet runs from cron, and it relies on the work of some periodic events on the Launchpad server. Your changes could take up to two hours to take effect.
