Git Commit Signing with Keybase

I already have a keybase account. I’ve been interested in getting git commit signing setup with my keybase pgp key. I quickly found a nice guide that worked well. See:

After following the guide, git now shows my commits as signed. Example:

bgianf@LMAO:~/src/lab-notebook/src$ git log --show-signature -1
commit be372efa95c64ef4a71e2b06e69baf47d275923f (HEAD -> main, origin/main, origin/HEAD)
gpg: Signature made Tue Dec 29 21:14:34 2020 PST

    Notes: Add note about signing commits with keybase pgp keys

GitHub displays these with the VERIFIED qualifier.
