GPG key that signed the Squeeze repo is now expired. How should I handle this properly ? Despite the key is expired, it use to be valid and I don't like much the idea of going for [trusted=yes] for each impacted sources.list entry.

Sadly, if the expiry date of the key is not extended there is little you can do beyond insuring that the key in your keyring is up-to-date which is normaly done automatically on Debian.

Googling this gives some things to try.



you could try:

"# Fetch a key from the keyring
$ gpg --keyserver keyring.debian.org --recv-key 0xkeyid"

Where <0xkeyid> is the keyid to be updated.

$ --refresh-keys

I don't use squeeze so I can't properly test it! :)
