GPG stores keys inside an internal database of some sort. How to export your public key in the familiar -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK----- format so that it can be imported to other software? E.g. to a git forge.

No need to search for a key id, just type your e-mail associated with your key and export your public key like this:

$ gpg --export -a something@example.net > my_key.asc

This is how to save it to a file:

$ gpg --export --armor key-id > my-key.pub

--armor stands for the format with printable characters.
