# For an approach that is so keen on expiring keys and signatures, it seems odd that the directory verification key does not have an expiry date set.
# It is not clear whether mirroring, syncing or other facilities are going to be avaliable so that institutions concerned about keyserver requests going outside their intranet can establish a local copy, as they can with other keyserver solutions. ''There are reports that submitting keys to the old PGP servers results in confirmation emails being sent to users through the beta, but I've been unable to reproduce this (20/Dec/2004 StuartYeates).''
# Searching for a name requires the exact name. "Stuart A Yeates", "Stuart A. Yeates" and "Stuart Andrew Yeates" are considered unrelated names and there is no way to search using a substring. ''This is only true when searching through the web interface. It is not true when searching via GnuPG or the PGPKeys GUI. In these cases (which are actually LDAP searches), substring searches are available. (22/Dec/2004 David Shaw).'' ''This is requires upgrading to the new [GnuPG] 1.5 release (7/Jan/2005 StuartYeates).''
# The system is unnecessarily incompatible with existing search tools and systems, particularly with respect to searching for keys.
