Having administered sourceware for nine or ten years now, I haven't
had to deal with that many ssh key updates.  However, when I have, it
is rarely the case that someone has planned a key change.  They usually
are because someone accidentally deleted the key.  So, while I actually
do have an automated way to for people to update their keys on sourceware
it rarely gets used.

So, I may offer a way to update a key but I doubt that it will get used
