Some versions ago I have change the trust model so that it now validates a key on a user-id basis. This is the same model as PGP uses. The validity of a key is therefore associated with the user-id and calculated for each user-id. The value display after "pub:" is simply the maximum value of all user-ids. -- Werner Koch at keyid 621CC013
