Who's key was "theirs"?  One from rpmfusion or rpmfind?

Yum (and packagekit using yum) use a mirror list to get your files from
a random repo mirror on their list.  We'd generally trust that whoever
compiled the list only included trustworthy mirrors, and I've not heard
comments to suggest otherwise.  The only problems I've read about have
been about mirrors which are slow to download from, or slow for updates
to appear on.

Each of the repos has, or should have, a public key for verification
before you use their repo.

-- 
[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
2.6.27.25-78.2.56.fc9.i686

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
