New Swift Automatic Sign Key

We are updating the Linux development snapshot signing key to 'Swift Automatic Signing Key #3', because 'Swift Automatic Signing Key #2' will expire.

Starting Nov 7th 2019 (tonight) we will be publishing development snapshots with the new signing key.

The new signing key is also available on https://swift.org/download under "Active Signing Keys”.

Are you aware you can also change the expiration date of existing keys? That still won't remove the need to --recv-keys to refresh the key from a key server, but it seems preferable to creating a completely new key to me.

Thanks for sharing this information, however it makes it clear to install a new cert.
