            versions of the letters to denote the _usable_
            capabilities of the entire key, and a potential letter 'D'

            the issuer certificate.  This is useful to build the
            certificate path based on certificates stored in the local
            keyDB; it is only filled if the issue certificate is
            available. The advantage of using this value is that it is
            guaranteed to have been been build by the same lookup
            algorithm as gpgsm uses.

            -edit menu does.
            For "sig" records, this is the fingerprint of the key that
            issued the signature.  Note that this is only filled in if
            the signature verified correctly.  Note also that for
            various technical reasons, this fingerprint is only
            available if --no-sig-cache is used.'''},
