There is no schedule for that other than rotating the signing subkey
roughly once a year (if we think the current signing key is not safe to
use anymore we'll do this transition earlier, of course). And it won't
happen within a point release. I guess planning to do so for every .5
series might be a good thing. This change will always be tested in the
alpha channel first as it was done this time as well.
