I am trying to do the gpg key thing and it is getting me more and more frustrated.
I sent in my key got the email, clicked on the confirmation link and here is what it is telling me to do:

Confirm OpenPGP key Confirm the key XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX by shawn
Please paste a clear-signed copy of the following phrase into the box below. This can be achieved by saving the phrase to a file and running gpg --clearsign FILENAME.
Please register XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to the
Launchpad user harlequingraphics. 2009-06-15 20:25:29 UTC
The question is: what is the phrase they are talking about?

Also, it says to run "gpg --clearsign FILENAME" in terminal. I get this as a return:

gpg: can't open `FILENAME': No such file or directory
gpg: FILENAME: clearsign failed: file open error
