No. The DDs sign different keys.

keyring-maint prefer that either you replace the key before doing NM, or
after it's complete and you're a DD, rather than as part of the process.

(It's much easier to move an existing key from the DM keyring to the DD
keyring than if we have to remove a key from the DM keyring and add a
different one to the DD keyring.)


To understand recursion, we must first
                                            understand recursion.
