That's what I meant.

Having to rely on keyservers is a bit unfortunate, since they are a
centralized service, and therefore easily blockable. Further, having
to publish one's contacts via key signatures to everyone has some
privacy implications that may be unfortunate.

At some point it may be good to think about those, for FreedomBox
in particular, but it's not a problem that's urgent to solve for
