Replying to the mentors mailing list, as a better forum to ask this
sort of question.

That typically indicates that your name as listed in the changelog
doesn't match your name as known to GPG (including the comment). It
is preferred that -k is not used except for sponsoring, but it doesn't
cause any problems beyond easily matching identification for you to
sponsor your own uploads.

Use `dput revu $(whatever)_source.changes` to upload your package.
This should upload all of .changes, .dsc, .diff.gz, and .orig.tar.gz.

It is a type of subkey created in your GPG key. If you created a
new key, you likely received one by default.
