Google for and other pages or see
what has.

I asked similar questions before but didn't receive a reply either, IIRC.

The keyanalyze preprocess.keys file doesn't have uid strings in it,
currently.  I still haven't used sigtrace, but I generate pgpring -f -S
listings each time I run my intermediate keyanalyze reports.  That
output was 653,859,245 bytes on the 17th, but compresses nicely -
under 200MB.  (Removing the fingerprints helps too.)  I can also see
about providing xdelta diffs for the data.

Alternately, I will _consider_ creating the sigtrace databases with
each keyanalyze report, depending on the complexity.
