Errata ID: 2240
Status: Held for Document Update
Type: Editorial

Reported By: Constantin Hagemeier

Section 12.1. says:

   In the above diagram, if the binding signature of a subkey has been
   revoked, the revoked key may be removed, leaving only one key.

It should say:

   In the above diagram, if the binding signature of a subkey has been
   revoked, the revoked key may be removed.  Note that this bears the
   danger of importing the subkey again without the Binding Signature
   Revocation.

Notes:

If there are more than one subkeys, the removing of one leaves more
than one key. And the warning is missing.

Changed to editorial.
