In our sourceforge forum an anonymous poster is asking:
"Please provide public keys for the Ubuntu (Gutsy and Hardy) 0.46
Do we have these? If so, were? See
BTW, I noticed a few weeks ago that the (likely highly ineffective)
spamming of our "installation help" forum has stopped, so I've
re-enabled the anonymous posting.

Unfortunately, due to the ways that PPAs work this is impossible. What
happens with the PPA is that the binary is built on one of Canonical's
servers, so no Inkscape developer can sign it. It was decided with the
PPAs that the packages would not be signed as it might make users
believe that a package in a PPA was coming from an official repository.
I disagree with this choice, but as long as we're using free processor
time we don't get to choose :)
