See what I wrote in the line above the one you quoted:

|  - design and discuss this with the release team

I didn't make this decision.  It has been common practice on the
Debian archive for a number of years though.

There are pros and cons for using a yearly key and a key that lasts
for an entire release.  However,

 - if anything should be changed from the current situation, the
   ftpmaster (and release team) need to be involved and

 - if not a solution needs to be established to distribute the key
   other than by aj sending a mail to debian-devel with the location
   of the new key.
