Code Of Conduct Steps

tutorial I followed, minus the key generation:

Open up a terminal and run:

:~$ gpg --gen-key

...fill in info

Information you get when once your key is generated:

gpg: key xxxxxxxx marked as ultimately trusted public and secret key created and signed.

gpg: checking the trustdb gpg: 3 marginal(s) needed, 1 complete(s) needed, PGP trust model gpg: depth: 0 valid: 4 signed: 0 trust: 0-, 0q, 0n, 0m, 0f, 4u pub 1111F/R3E12345 2013-08-25

  • Key fingerprint = xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx

uid Name (comment) <e-mail> sub 1111F/R3E12345 2013-08-25

upload to

:~$ gpg --keyserver --send-keys XXXXXXXX

fill the x's with the key you got once you generated your key. (refrence bold above)

go to

  • log in
  • click to edit OpenPGP keys:
  • copy and paste your fingerprint into the fingerprint field
  • launchpad will email you an encrypted message
  • open email, save to a text file and decrypt it:
  • open terminal and run this command:

:~$ gpg --decrypt <filename>

  • there will be a link at the bottom of your message
  • click that link, click the continue button
  • OpenPGP key will be uploaded to!

Now to sign the Code of Conduct

navigate to: Click to Download the code of conduct

(( if an error comes up saying no public key, try.. gpg -u <key> --clearsign UbuntuCodeofConduct-2.0.txt.asc )) go back to browser, click "sign it" button copy and paste the new .asc createdfile into the open field and click continue

That should redirect you to a page showing your signed CodeOfConduct!
