Being honest, PackageKit should really just abort the transaction in the
unsigned case, as if the mirror has been compromised then we should fail
to upgrade an unsigned package. At the moment rawhide is wide open.

If prevented unsigned packages, nobody would be able to use rawhide at

Maybe a setting in PackageKit.conf might be the best plan:


What do you guys think. Upstream we set this to abort, and patch the
package in rawhide to "allow" -- having F10 set to warn or abort.
