If 9/ is excluded, wouldn't that mean 9/$releasever/*/os.newkey is also 
excluded? If it's not, then I guess there's no point in the new 
directory being created either.

Will the ISOs be respun to reflect the changes as well so that what is 
in os/ or in os.newkey/ meets what each of the ISO expects? I guess this 
is primarily relevant to respins, netinstalls and so forth, as the old 
RPM-GPG-KEYs will be in the root of those ISOs and I can only presume 
they are used, and people will want to use os.newkey/ as the tree to 
install from.

Has creating/composing an entirely new 9.1/ release tree been 
considered? I guess recreating the entire release tree is a PITA (jigdo, 
iso, torrent, foo) even though updates would not be included other then 
maybe the updated fedora-release package (with the new rpm-gpg-keys and 
new repo configuration files)?

Kind regards,
