You get that message because the OpenPGP key for the repository is not 
installed.  You can get it here, right below the deb sources:

I have the same repository in my sources list and have no problems.  You will 
just have to stay informed of when the 4.2.3 version goes into the official 
repositories and disable it then.  

The only thing I see a little buggy with 4.2.3 is when I copy gigabytes of 
music from one computer to another using multiple thumb drives.  After many 
times pluggin in the drives they sometimes do not get recognized when I pop 
them in the machine, also one of the hal daemons goes to 100% for a while.  I 
am trying to reliably reproduce it, but so far no luck.
