For some reason you seem to have posted a new thread rather than
replying in your original thead/post. Please look into fixing this.

Mine is not a good example so I'll snip many ppa lines & only include
the relevant lines:
$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list |grep ppa
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main

That key has nothing to do with the OOo ppa:
That key is:
Empty for now, will likely have OOo 3.2.0/3.2.1 debs for Karmic/Lucid
later in the cycle.
However the signing key would have been:
1024R/247D1CFF (What is this?)
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 247D1CFF
$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 247D1CFF

See above. Looks like he's moved on to lucid:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu lucid main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/openoffice-pkgs/ppa/ubuntu lucid main

Worth a bug report, but remember that a PPA is a "Personal Package
Archive" an is not supported by Ubuntu.

See above. Note that the official OOo version does not use gstreamer, so
you'll not be able to use video & sound out-of-the-box. Alternate is to
use go-oo (which Ubuntu OOo is based on):
http://www.go-oo.org/ but that's a pain. I'll see if I can ping Chris &
ask if the (U)OOo 3.1 packages will be included in backports.
