New to Linux and trying to sign to be part of the bug team as I feel it will help me learn the internals and make me a better end user.

I have made it as far as:

  1. In a terminal, run the command:
    gpg --clearsign UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt
    (or whatever filename you gave to the code). This will create a file with a name like UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt.asc.
  2. Open that new file, and copy and paste its contents into this box. Then click “Continue”.

I have changed the file type to the .asc and have tried to copy and paste yet I get this error:

There is 1 error.
(7, 58, u'No data')

Any help would be much appreciated!
