I have public and private keyring files in my .gnupg directory (pubring.gpg and secring.gpg). I want to create a new keyring trustedkeys.gpg, also in .gnupg, to which I can add other people's public keys.

How do I create this new keyring?

The convention is to have all keys in your pubring. Trust is marked using GnuPG's own settings. –  grawity Mar 12 '12 at 22:19
gpgv expects signatures to be in trustedkeys.gpg. –  rlandster Mar 13 '12 at 3:57
