Bug#980743: release-notes: bullseye is the final release to ship apt-key

Package: release-notes
Severity: wishlist
X-Debbugs-Cc: jak@debian.org

apt-key warns that it is deprecated and the manual page states that
Debian 11 and Ubuntu 22.04 will be the last releases to ship it, but I
guess given that use is still far too widespread, it can't hurt to add a
similar message to the release notes.

-- Message:

This is the final Debian release to ship apt-key. Keys should be managed by
dropping files into trusted.gpg.d instead, in binary format as created
by gpg --export with a .gpg extension, or ASCII armored with a .asc

A replacement for apt-key list to investigate the keyring is planned,
but work has not started yet.
