It may be worth considering to add a Dependency against GnuPG 
to apt when apt complains if no gnupg or no keyring has been
found on the users system.

Alternatively, it may be worth considering to alter the default setting
of apt so that it will accept packages from untrusted source - i.e. from
official Debian mirrors.  Maybe by adding

	// Comment this out to only accept packages from authorised
	// sources.  See apt-key(8) for details.
	APT::Get::AllowUnauthenticated "true";

to /etc/apt/apt.conf (or use a single file in apt.conf.d)



The only stupid question is the unasked one.
