Hi Martin

Yes you are mentioning an interesting topic.
Your fear is that the ftpmasters have also the power over the keyring.
Well it might be my mistake. Werner and me worked a bit on a 
Debian-Edu/Skolelinux Archive policy.
I did not commit it into the wiki, so my mistake.
There we made clear that *only* drift is able to decide about accounts.
I think we will include more information in your status email in two or three 
For now it is true that the ftpmasters can add a key to the keyring and give 
upload rights. Most of the ftpmasters are also drift members and I personally 
can say that *I* would never add a key to the keyring!
Only if drift would advice me to do so, but they can do it alone, because they 
have access to sabine (the skolelinux account creation script).
Leaving this discussion for drift and keep on working on dak setup.
