GPG Keychain showing revoked/expired keys found on SKS when using new Hagrid key server+SKS fallback (GPG Keychain #497)

In the new version of GPG Keychain shipping with 2019.1 the option to not show revoked/expired keys disappears when using the new Hagrid key server @ hkps:// - in it's place is the option to fallback to using the SKS pool for keys not found on the Hagrid key server. However, keys found in the SKS network this way are displayed with the expired & revoked keys - which used to be disabled by default - with no way to specify they should be excluded.

    The new default will not show revoked / expired keys when Hagrid ( is used and fallback for key search to sks is enabled.

    All the best,
