Hi, during DebConf9 the Debian Keyring Maintainers, the “Debian Maintainer Keyring Team” and FTPMaster discussed the maintenance of the extra debian-maintainers keyring. The conclusion was that the maintenance of the keyring is handed over to the Debian Keyring maintainers, while the policy (add/remove/change) is kept with the DM Keyring team.
Thanks to this change we FTPMasters can now allow Debian Maintainers to
also use our various upload queues for their uploads. You are no
longer bound to ftp-master only.
Note that DAK learns about changes in the keyring during dinstall, so
there can be a delay of up to 6 hours before a newly added key is fully
working. As DAK sends a mail with a summary of changes it learned, it is
safest to wait until you saw this mail appear on firstname.lastname@example.org.
 It is now a similar handling as for the other keyrings. There DAM
tells keyring-maint who to add/remove.
 With the exception of security. DMs continue to be unable to do
security uploads, as that archive has no knowledge of DMUA status of
– bye, Joerg
