Trust my own packages

I created a few packages using


and uploaded them to my ftp server. I ran

apt-ftparchive release ./ > ./Release
gpg --output ./Release.gpg -ba ./Release
apt-ftparchive packages ./ > ./Packages
gpg --output ./Packages.gpg -ba ./Packages

to create the Signatures and imported my own key:

gpg -a --export <myid> | sudo apt-key add -

I then added

deb lucid-backports universe

to sources.list

helmut at ubuntu:~/temp/Ubuntu$ find .
helmut at ubuntu:~/temp/Ubuntu$

When I now try to update packages with the new ones I receive the

WARNING: untrusted versions of the following packages will be installed!

How can I trust my own packages?

Thanks, Helmut
