The release process for Pulp 3 will be different from what we do for Pulp
2. Our plan for publishing Pulp 3 with quality to PyPI is outlined on our

beta cycle. After the packages are published to PyPI,  any of the
derivative packaging (RPM, Debian, etc) can be performed. The build team
can decide how often the derivative packages need to be produced.

hosted on fedorapeople.org. I'd like to defer to someone else to speak
about the signing.
