Update the PGP key

First, edit the key (make sure to replace FINGERPRINT):

gpg --edit-key FINGERPRINT

Get a list of user IDs and find the index of the one to assign the notation to:


Select the desired user ID (make sure to replace N):

uid N

Add a new notation:


Enter the notation (make sure to update the link):

Please note that the /users/ part of the URL is mandatory for the proof to work.
