I am setting up a new laptop and one of the first thing was that I generated new strong RSA key. I am used to github and other services that allow you to specify list of the keys and now I got surprised that adding a new key here removed the old one.

Are you really advising to share the private key between the computers? I thought this is very bad practice (it is) and now I am seeing it as the only option if I want to push occasionally from two computers to dist-git. Or is there any way to work around it? Will uploading file with two public keys work? Where is the best place to fill a bug report/feature request?

Can you be more specific? You create a new ssh key on your new system, and where you you need to add this new key? I never had problems adding multiple keys to the file .ssh/authorized_keys, so there is really no bug to be reported.
