Recently I have added a new identity to my GPG key pair. Can I still
use my existing revocation certificate with my key pair or do I have to
renew it because of the added identity?

I am supposing the revocation certificate just refers to my main
key ID regardless of the identities belonging to the key pair. I have
discussed this with some colleagues but we could not fully clarify the

Thanks for your feedback.
