Yes, David, you are right. I want a bit more.
Some contacts may not be directly signed by the CA, then the trust
model will be important, I suppose. How can the signature of the CA be
useful as far down the tree as possible?
Can you please explain the PGP-model and how to issue trust signatures
(tsign), with the implications for the validity of keys.
