    OK, I'm taking this as "5 years is fine by us". :-)

    And the recommended procedure for rotating keys seems to be (1) generate
    a new key and (2) make as many people as you can sign it before the old
    one expires, right?

    I wonder what the procedure of restoring access in case one
    has lost keys is supposed to be?
