Please provide the emdebian key as GPG keyring file as well

Recently it was explained to me in https://bugs.debian.org/838779 that there is a neat way to install new repositories without using apt-key and manual fingerprint verification.

In the case of emdebian, specifically the instructions at https://wiki.debian.org/CrossToolchains#Installation, that way could be as easy as:

# echo deb http://emdebian.org/tools/debian/ jessie main > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/crosstools.list
# /usr/lib/apt/apt-helper download-file http://emdebian.org/tools/debian/emdebian-toolchain-archive.gpg /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/emdebian-toolchain-archive.gpg SHA256:4b742137b3cd204a2b476408aed490f159d29bf82296e2ba988ae38918577f34

(I tested that the above commands work — in principle — with Debian jessie.)

Now, the file http://emdebian.org/tools/debian/emdebian-toolchain-archive.gpg does not exist yet (only http://emdebian.org/tools/debian/emdebian-toolchain-archive.key, which is a GPG armored public key).

Could I ask you to please provide http://emdebian.org/tools/debian/emdebian-toolchain-archive.gpg? The command to accomplish this should be:
$ gpg --no-default-keyring --keyring emdebian-toolchain-archive.gpg --import /tmp/emdebian-toolchain-archive.gpg

I can then gladly take care of updating the wiki appropriately.

Thanks a lot!

Best regards,
