Re: Should Fedora rpms be signed?

How?  Would it make you feel better if the fake updates had installed a
signature first?  Or told you that you had to install a new key from the
fake site?  The ONLY thing that signatures tell you is that the RPM has
been signed with a particular key, that's it.

The only thing that was shown is that there are potentially people that
will blindly follow directions from any random e-mail they recieve.

(I leave to others to explain the difference between "Fedora Core" RPMs
(that are signed) and "Rawhide" RPMs (which may or may not be signed).)
