[Apologies if this appears twice - I sent it earlier in the week and
haven't seen it appear yet, even in the message archives.]

I'd like to start using the block list described at
<http://www.dshield.org/block_list_info.php> but have a concern.
Specifically, the key which is currently used to sign the block list
(858E383B) differs from the one the web page points me to; ie,

   gpg -v
gpg: armor header: Version: GnuPG v1.0.7 (GNU/Linux)
pub  1024D/6CD2A449 2003-02-01 DShield Submissions (use to send encrypted 
    submissions to dshield.org) <reports at dshield.org>
sig        6CD2A449 2003-02-01   [selfsig]
sub  1024g/59A84BD2 2003-02-01  [expires: 2005-01-31]
sig        6CD2A449 2003-02-01   [keybind]

Given that the user id on 6CD2A449 differs from what's in get_block.pl,
I'm inclined to treat this as a documentation error and just retrieve
858E383B from my favourite keyserver and be done with it.
