Hi folks,

TL;DR New common-lisp.net users now need to send their SSH key to
enroll.  A PGP key is no longer required.

I got two responses regarding PGP usage, both of them agreeing that
they are not useful enough to keep them an hassle our new users with
installing gpg.  Instead, new users now need to send their SSH public
key.  Please let me know if you have any issues with the change.
