[Rack] Updated the gate just a slight bit

Hi Rubin,

it seems a proper cron job is missing for the key update or I couldn't
find it on pony.noise, or the invokation for the newkey.sh script on
pony didn't work. I executed the script by hand for this week, so the
key is updated.

Please recheck the key update procedure works properly and is calling
the update script in the process.
