Actually, I don't quite understand what "trustdbs" are about in GnuTLS
(and OpenCDK).  Does it refer to RFC 2440 "trust packets"?  Or does it
refer to "signature packets" as found in a "transferable public key"?
How does it differ from a "keyring"?

Then, what is "ownertrust" in RFC 2440 terms?

Thanks (and sorry for not being more helpful ;-)),
