I don't see a problem in someone posting a signed message.  I do see a
problem in beleiving that they are who they claim to be.  There isn't
any verification done, it's self-signed (self created).  I've yet to
find *any* GPG/PGP key that was counter-signed by another person, let
alone one that was counter-signed by someone I trust.

I think that is a glaring omission when it comes to RPM packages, or
even notices about updates.  Nevemind e-mails.
