I just received the reset password mail, and it asks me to reset my ssh

key to the fedora server. Why would I want to reset my key pair?
#fedora-admin:
(17:40:55) mmcgrath: mpdehaan: well, couple of reasons.
(17:41:16) mmcgrath: mpdehaan: 1) we removed all the keys as an affective
way of disabling access everywhere while we're working
(17:41:42) mmcgrath: and 2) we decided it wasn't a bad idea to have people
fix it on their own, it helps with stuff like pruning, etc.

So, does this mean we can re-upload the *same* public key as before,
or do we need to generate a new one?

Generating a new one is recommended.
