Re: expired key



right, that's what it looks like. but why can't i change the expiration
date on a subkey? whenever i try to gpg --edit-key 47B34D0B to change
the expiration date, the date is changed to key 90414D8C. i've read thru
the man pages.... it may be my error, but shouldn't i be able to change
the expire of a subkey? or, more importantly, if the subkey expires, can
i still use 90414D8C as both public and secret key?

thanks,
jason

| | 
| | IIRC, I simply edited the key and removed the expiration date ;)

| i'm curious about this. whenever i list my own key using gnupg, i get:
| 
| pub  1024D/90414D8C 2002-01-30 Jason M. Harvey <jason@theigloo.dhs.org>
| sub  1024g/47B34D0B 2002-01-30 [expires: 2007-01-29]
| 
| even as another user on another box. i'ved done 'gpg --edit-key' and
| told it to expire never. i just installed gpa to see what it was like...
| it tells me the key never expires. so, which should i believe gpa or
| gpg??!
| 
| thanks,
