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.
