  $ gpg -k 'C485 A6CD 7EC6 6E9E EC33  65F2 70F2 75E4 C32F 6CA5'
  pub   dsa1024/70F275E4C32F6CA5 2005-04-10 [expired: 2009-12-31]
  uid       [ expired] FSFE Fellowship (certification key) <ca at fsfe.org>

Back in 2005 the idea was to setup our own OpenPGP "CA" and the FSFE
prepared the cards for this (this is also one of the the reasons for the
PIN letter).  However, the folks responsible for the fellowship card
never came around to setup a process to actually run such a "CA" and
thus the whole thing got dusty.  I still have the CDROM with the private
key but I do not think that this expired key is of any use.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
