I need the ftpmaster 2005 archive key from
/usr/share/keyrings/debian-role-keys.gpg for reprepro to verify
downloads. I could copy the relevant key directly into the source
package though.

Do you have any pointer to why debian-keyring shouldn't be used?

As for reprepro you need that to drive the archive itself. You only
need it on one host though and can export the created archive to all
other hosts (if you have more).

The OOo in sid has slightly different depends so 2 libs are still
missing there. I'm fixing this hopefully tonight. Just need to add the
names to packages.list and test.

Not at all. Frederik Schueler and Kurt Roeckx are doing most of the
buildd work currently and Joerg Jaspert and Andreas Barth are
responsible for the archive itself and others pitch in here and there
too, just like me.
