Those —quick commands are a huge help. The one thing missing seems to be one for the routine extension of the expiry of subkeys.

Or is there a clever syntax for the ‘fpr of the primary key to refer to a subkey by number or otherwise (referring to it by fingerprint gives me a ‘<fpr> is not the primary fingerprint” ?

Kind regards,
