don't tell me i am just not getting this GPG/PGP business again.

but maybe someone can tell me what the subkey (D99FEE8D) is? that's
for encryption, right? that's not signed by anyone anyway, is it?
cause i don't seem to be capable of changing the expiration date on
that one.

and besides, i noticed a lot of the keys on debian users are with
expiration dates. that's a good thing (tm). but judging from the wast
amounts of signatures some people have collected, i doubt that process
takes place every year, again and again...
