If you want the version of the keyring the project infrastructure is
using then the canonical way to obtain it is:

     rsync -az --progress keyring.debian.org::keyrings/keyrings/ .

There is a sha512sums.txt file included which will be signed by myself,
gwolf or dkg.

To the main point of your email there is discussion about ensuring that
even DMs have usernames and I believe it would be a good idea for LDAP
to then have a separate group to indicate when someone is a DM vs a DD.
