    That is a good question. At the very least you want it to be valid for
    long enough that you will be able to get enough signatures on a new key
    *before* your old key expires. As such I would recommend 3-5 years
    depending on how much you trust yourself to keep the key secure.

    Some people have decided to opt for an unlimited key, but that
    *requires* that you have a way to revoke the old key, which is why we
    are considering a key revocation escrow service.
