  Just as a side note other developers may be interested in knowing, the
  debian keyring can be synced via rsync. I personally like having a
  mostly-up-to-date copy of it in my computer.

    % cat /etc/cron.weekly/LOCAL-update-keyring
    #! /bin/sh -e

    cd /var/local/keyring
    rsync -rlptDq rsync://keyring.debian.org/keyrings/ .
