If you do that, ABSOLUTELY MAKE SURE TO CHANGE THE LINE
to something like:
Otherwise, *everyone* could now upload these files to
ftp-master, which would result in YOU signing for an
(unauthorised) upload to Debian sid. With bad timing,
you would not even realise that before the time for
dcut passes. Big shit.
Or use a separate PGP key.
