I cannot verify this signature with gpg or pgp. gpg says

gpg: invalid radix64 character 00 skipped
gpg: Signature made Tue Oct 10 08:26:46 2000 MEST using DSA key ID 2BCBC621
gpg: BAD signature from "H. Peter Anvin (hpa) <>"


Hash: SHA1

Hi everyone,

I just wanted to let everyone know that we have changed the
cryptographic key for the Linux Kernel Archives. The reason is that
the original key was generated with an expiration date, and
unfortunately it appears that too much software out there doesn't
support changing the expiration date on an already valid key (the
ability to do that, arguably, makes the expiration date useless

Therefore, we have revoked key 1E1A8782 generated 1999-10-15 and
replaced it with key 517D0F0E generated 2000-10-10. Please see for more information.

The archive machine is currently in process of generating new
signature files; they should be distributed to mirrors shortly
thereafter in normal order.
