I meant what I said.

You getting my pgp key (8e11ddf31279a281) from https://mysite has no
inherent benefit over getting it from http://mysite. Or likewise,
getting "notDansRealKey" from "https://notmysite" doesn't actually
protect you.

Your trust in my key (and therefore, my signature) should not be founded
on _where_ you got it from, but your own personal web of trust made up
of (hopefully!) people you know and trust to do their due diligence for
confirming I am me. (Or in the specific case of the devuan signing key,
that the devuan key is actually owned by the team).
