Subject: [GNUnet-developers] about the FCFS registration and the pubkey - which pubkey to really use? -s? or really -P?

Hello list,

I am rather a newbie here, and not exactly any kind of developer,
still I am trying to look into the gnunet and these new dns zones and
the fcfs subzone.

I have self-compiled 0.9.3 and tried to register some zone (do you
only type the subzone name, or a complete one on the fcfs regsite?),
but I think the only time it succeeded was, when I actually used not
the gnunet-rsa -P command but the gnunet-rsa -S command to get the
short/hashed pubkey of my installation.

Is that a bug in documentation at:

also on:
please give examples next to the textbox fields, that would make it
easier for the user.

so is
What is your desired domain name?

or rather only

and the public key, is it really supposed to be generated via
gnunet-rsa -P ~/.gnunet/gns/zonekey.zkey

rather than
gnunet-rsa -s ~/.gnunet/gns/zonekey.zkey?

The script/registrationwebsite constantly gave me errors until I
actually switched over and used the -s (256bit hashed private key
according to manual) parameter.

Where would my registered subzone actually show up on my local system?
gnunet-setup nor any of the gtk tools showed me anything else than
only a plain "fcfs" entry after that import .sh script, and not even a
nested fcfs.gnunet. entry or anything.

I used to do a bit of dns-admin in the past and ran some local
(internal) dns zones of my own on LAN/WAN networks, but I have yet to
understand were we are headed once we register our own subzones to
that fcfs.gnunet. zone.

Also, after I did a registration with my private key (-s one) I
couldnt register any further zones with that key any more, the
registration website refused to use this same private key for
additional entries. Is this on purpose? How do we practically register
multiple zones and have multiple private/public keys in use.

Thanks. Regards.
