Periodically, by hand. Using a little script Darxus originally wrote:

#! /bin/sh
export keys=`gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring ./phillylinux.gpg
--list-keys | grep ^pub | cut -d'/' -f2 | cut -d' ' -f1`
echo $keys
gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring ./phillylinux.gpg  --keyserver
pgp.mit.edu -- recv-keys $keys
