I currently have a SSH key that I've used for a while and I'd like to start using GnuPG with a new keyring. However, given that I've used my key for ages, I would like to still use that key in GPG as the main/primary key. I've tried importing the key via these instructions.

But, I end up with what's considered to be a "subkey". Furthermore, if I try to import it without creating a standard GPG key, GPG doesn't even see this subkey. (I'm assuming that the subkey needs to be signed by the main key first.)

How do I use this key as the main key within secring.gpg?
