Can you stop asking useless security theater measures instead ?

My ssh keys are fine and I see no reason to change them for you.
If all projects I participate in were to ask me to change my keys I
would end up with a mess of different keys for absolutely no reason.

I have no problem with changing the password, but leave my ssh keys
alone, unless there is a real reason to ask people to change them.
