Q. apt-get complains that it can't verify binaries. I installed gnupg but the errors persist.

A. You probably don't have the gnuab archive key imported. Try:

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv CD02E583 && gpg --export CD02E583 | sudo apt-key add -

Note, however, that pure "Architecture: all" packages still can't be verified because of the hack apt uses to get them from official archive.

Currently we have 77% of the archive ported.  The missing packages just fail to
build for some reason (check www.buildd.net).

It should be.  However, since we're tracking unstable, things might break
temporarily sometimes.  Is kde-core currently uninstallable?
