| Really?  In gpg or pgp?  And had you previously imported the key from a
| keyserver?  As I figured out (slowly) and David just pointed out as well,
| the expiration was from an old uid that was present on the keyserver
but not

have the

| that's causing the key to show as expired.

OK, I flushed your ID, then reimported with the .asc file.  good now.

| I've now revoked those uid's and uploaded the key to these keyservers:
|     ldap://
|     x-hkp://
|     ldap://
| Hopefully, that will propagate reasonably.  If not, I'll send it to other
| keyservers if and when I feel like spending more time futzing with the
| keyservers. :)
