* GitHub, Giteas and GitLabs expose user public keys when you append a .keys after their profile page

## Quick howto
I don't mean this to be used directly, only to be took inspiration from. See the first
link in further reading.
```bash
mkdir -p ~/src/gitea.blesmrt.net/Mikaela
cd ~/src/gitea.blesmrt.net/Mikaela
git clone https://gitea.blesmrt.net/Mikaela/ssh-allowed_signers.git
git config --global gpg.ssh.allowedSignersFile ~/src/gitea.blesmrt.net/Mikaela/ssh-allowed_signers/allowed_signers
```
Git commands should now recognised commits signed with keys I have allowed.
In the last command it's fine to remove `--global` to only affect the single
repository you are on (while I haven't tested this), should that repository
be something only I am signing in or something I need to verify otherwise
enough to list it here.
On the last command, `git config` turns it into absolute path, while manually
edited `.gitconfig` can literally have the above. I wonder if the command
would understand `--` before the file, but not enough to actually try it :smiley:
