Fedora send a total of three announcements regarding this:

http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-announce-list/2008-August/msg00008.html
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-announce-list/2008-August/msg00011.html
http://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-announce-list/2008-August/msg00012.html

The last announcement mentions that Fedora is moving to a new key. The 
plan for that is outlined in

http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/rel-eng/2008-August/001627.html

There will be further announcements when changes are required. Keep an 
eye on the fedora-announce list for updates. Hope that helps.
