I always used the web to retrieve the gnupg key

I use it because sometimes retrieving the key from subkeys is very
slow and even not responding, There is also a missing section about
it in "Instructions"
No it isn't. We use the debian ftpmaster key which is already installed in
your system.

Another note, in "Instructions" there's a typo in "Subscribe to
secruritry announce mailing list"
Thanks, I'll fix it later.


Hello Alexander,

It's strange, as while doing an "apt-get update" this night, apt complained about the missing key... installing the package mentionned in my previous post solved the problem



Same here:

Get:1 http://backports.debian.org lenny-backports/main Packages/DiffIndex [505B] Get:2 http://backports.debian.org lenny-backports/non-free Packages/DiffIndex [229B] Get:3 http://backports.debian.org lenny-backports/contrib Packages/DiffIndex [229B] Get:4 http://backports.debian.org lenny-backports/main Sources/DiffIndex [643B] Get:5 http://backports.debian.org lenny-backports/non-free Sources/DiffIndex [229B] Get:6 http://backports.debian.org lenny-backports/contrib Sources/DiffIndex [229B]
Fetched 2064B in 2s (859B/s)
Reading package lists... Done
W: There is no public key available for the following key IDs:
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

Sorry for my last post that was in HTML, fixed my mail client.
