If You desire the 'Full Monty' Educational Course on 'WoT' [Web of
Trust] then either stick around or ask specifically about it. Since I
suspect You really just want the 'quick & dirty' Answers to the above
Questions; here they are:
1. Add this single line to Your gpg.conf
The addition of this line [---trust-model-always from Command Line] will
effectively 'tell' GPG that You have trust in _every_ Key in Your
Keyring and therefore to suppress an unnecessary Warning.
2. Answer = YES
3.) See Quote from David Smith above.
