just to point out that it's probably a good idea to update your key, as
those based on 1024 DSA should be considered not secure:

  The Digital Signature Algorithm, in its original form, only allowed
  maximum 1024-bit asymmetric keys, and the signature process itself
  signs a 160-bit hash, initially officially specified as SHA-1. This
  means that 1024-bit DSA keys should be phased out as well.

  So if you have a 1024-bit DSA key as your primary key ... you should
  consider creating a new primary key and starting the migration

also advises on how to migrate your key).
