While waiting for Werner or David; I'll share what I "know" about PKA in
* Implemented Public Key Association (PKA) trust sub model. This
is an optional trust model on top of the standard ones. It makes
use of special DNS records and notation data to associate a mail
address with an OpenPGP key. It is by default not used. To use
it you need to set the new option --allow-pka-lookup and an
appropriate trust-model. Also added new keyserver option
auto-pka-retrieve which is enabled by default but only working
if --allow-pka-lookup is also used.
