Alright, I figured out the thing making a new subkey.. But if the master
key has expired are the subkeys still good? Maybe what I'm looking for
is an explanation what a "master key" is.. Is it just the one which
fingerprint is used to identify my collection of master-key and
sub-keys, or is there more to being a master key than that?
