Description

Currently it starts to complain 1 day before and complaints minutely - too late for operators being afk for week(s) or so.

What's about warning once daily around 1 month ago, and hourly when 1 day left before expiration?

I would be fine with something like that, and fine with making the intervals configurable.

We might want to be a little more clever: If a key only has a one-month lifetime, we probably don't want to log constantly for its whole lifetime.
