-None.+1. Since mid-October,​ persmule'​s old signing key 0x2987A25DAC8454A5 has 
 +expired. A new key, 0xEDFFE248ECFACDE3C805906804A40D21DBB89B60,​ has been 
 +created and uploaded to https://​keys.openpgp.org/,​ it can be obtained from 
 +this keyserver. 
 + 
 +2. The new key will be used by persmule to sign future warrant canary 
 +documents. You can verify the signature by crosschecking the other two 
 +documents signed by biergaizi and wnereiz for consistency. 
 + 
 +3. Due to this key rollover, the October message was not signed by persmule. 
 +This did/does not indicate a security incident, all of the statements above 
 +were valid, and are still valid. 
 + 
 +4. Recent attacks on OpenPGP keyservers have raised great security concerns 
 +within the community, as a countermeasure,​ persmule'​s personal User-ID has 
 +not published to the https://​keys.openpgp.org/​ keyserver. Instead, only 
 +cryptographic information can be obtained from the keyserver, without any 
 +User-ID. Currently, it's impossible to import a OpenPGP public key without 
 +User-ID to a standard GnuPG installation,​ as a result, it's not possible 
 +for a 3rd-party to verify the canary document signed by persmule. 
 + 
 +5. We are looking for a solution. But for now, we decided that the best 
 +option is starting publishing new canary documents using the new key. 
 +As a temporary measure, you can check the canary documents signed by 
 +biergaizi and wnereiz to decide the validity of the Statements. By signing 
 +their own copies, it indicates that the new key has been verified privately 
 +by them as valid. 
 + 
 +6. This effectively reduced the number of signers to two people. It reduces 
 +the level of confidence, but currently there is no alternative option yet. 
 + 
 +7. Once the technical problem of OpenPGP public key without User-ID is 
 +resolved, you can check the previous signatures retroactively,​ and this 
 +would effectively restore the level of confidence. You can archive 
 +persmule'​s signature as soon as it's published to your own machine to 
 +ensure no data tampering has occured. 
 + 
 +8. Unlike persmule, biergaizi and wnereiz'​s signing keys are unchanged,​ 
 +but the Key-IDs have been changed to its full fingerprint format in the 
 +canary document for clarity. 
 + 
 +9. When new information is available, it will be published in the "​Special 
 +Announcements"​ section in future warrant canary documents.
