I don't know about the win32 builds...  Building from source on linux
the man page is available and current.

I thought this would be what you wanted, but it's definitely not


It's linked from the main documentation page.

FWIW, here are the sections on cross-certify from the 1.4.3 manual:

    --edit-key name
            Present a menu which enables you to do all key related tasks:
                    Add cross-certification signatures to signing
                    subkeys that may not  currently have them.
                    Cross-certification signatures protect against a
                    subtle attack against signing subkeys.  See

            When verifying a signature made from a subkey, ensure that
            the cross certification "back signature" on the subkey is
            present and valid.  This protects against a subtle attack
            against subkeys that can sign.   Currently  defaults  to
            --no-require- cross-certification,  but  will be changed
            to --require-cross-certification in the future.

There is no pleasure in having nothing to do; the fun is in having
lots to do and not doing it.
