GPG Keychain: Feature Request: User-Note per Key

In the GPG on mac it would be nice, if there was a user-note or user-comment feature. Because I would like to add a note to a key, so I know why I need/trust it. Many of the keys I have are only used to sign software I use. So I would like to add a little note, that this key belongs to that software. Is that possible?

    Hi Mike,

    thanks for taking the time to get in touch with this suggestion.

    We already have an open feature request to allow users to add a note per key and I've added your comments and vote to it. The number of votes is one factor that helps us to determine what feature to add next.

    Unfortunately there's no workaround for this problem at the time being. We're very sorry for that. This discussion will be updated however, when the requested feature is available.

    Have a nice day,
