  Well, if you revoked the key, then the revocation certificate is no
longer needed... just check if the revoked status of the key has
propagated through the key servers, and if it did, you can delete the
rev cert. But I advice to not delete the revoked key from your keyring,
since if you do that, you won't be able to decrypt messages/files
encrypted to that key...

  A last word: wait for advice from other members of this list, I am not
an expert, so...  In other words, some members say about themselves "I
can be wrong". In my case, "I can be right... maybe".

Regards
