thanks a lot!
are these reasonable defaults whats explained in the first paragraph or
is there more to it? in particular i'm interested in the cert-expire
option- i tried to use --quick-sign-key with --default-cert-expire 1y,
but then i didn't find a way to review the expiry date of the signature
(is there a switch to see the expiry date of signatures?)
thanks and cheers,
