Thanks! For now, this forum being on a secure server, it solves the problem :)

Unimportant things that you do on your own are often dangerous. You
know what happened to Linux Torvalds, Patrick Volkerding, Klaus
Knopper, Gaël Duval, etc.  :) I think your remix will get rather
popular. I understand a remix shouldn't cause a tidal wave but, who
knows.

With clear instructions on how to get your key... from a secure
server, that would be fine.

Is setting up a secure server a big problem? Honestly, I have no idea.

Excuse my paranoia... I understand chances of tampering are slight,
they're always slight, but people know that you're using Red Hat,
which has a good reputation for security. And your name is important
too. So better safe than sorry.

Sleep time now.
