Do I get source code for the all GPG keys they contain? The /usr/share/doc/debian-keyring/copyright even says "The keys in the keyrings don't fall under any copyright." Ooooops! Maybe there are other reasons, but let's not pretend we're keeping debian-backports-keyring out because it's not "free software". (Personally, I think all keyrings are fine.) -- Wesley J.
