I'm not responsible for the site, so just few hints: The packages were built
in Copr build system. For example rh-perl520 collection is located at
<http://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/rhscl/rh-perl520-el7/> there. Follow the
`Latest build' link, then a link under the `Results' section, and there is the
public key

I can see this key:

$ LC_ALL=en_US.UTF-8 gpg --list-key --fingerprint 798EE6A7
pub   rsa2048/798EE6A7 2015-06-08 [expires: 2020-06-06]
      Key fingerprint = 6E87 8CFA D326 62B0 2010  B439 EEB9 A7E7 798E E6A7
uid       [ unknown] rhscl_rh-perl520-el7 (None) <rhscl#rh-perl520-el7 at copr.fedorahosted.org>

Obviously the key differs for each collection and even for each Red Hat
Enterprise Linux version.

I think the best solution would be to sign the keys by softwarecollections.org
authority, upload them to key servers and publish the softwarecollections.org
authority's key on the <https://softwarecollections.org/>.
