It's the same source that released the rules the initial package bundles, and
last I've seen people trusted the Apache foundation

It wasn't hard for me, just annoying (create the key directory the package
forget, locate the right gpg key, make it available for sa, find the right
update command…)

For your run-of-the-mill user though, it's way over the hassle ceiling, he'll
just notice sa performance degrades quickly and fedora does not "just work" as
it should.

Given how spam is evolving if Red Hat is not comfortable with direct upstream
rule feeds it will have to set up its own update server sooner or later (same
applies for pyzor BTW)
