rpmlint does not use ~/.fedorarpm, so MISSING KEY is expected with it.

fedora-rpmchecksig does use it, but in order to successfully import some
keys, after retrieving it from a keyserver one may have to "strip" extra
signatures (ie. all but the self-signature) and/or identities from it
due to a bug in rpm: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/90952

This is not specific to fedora-rpmchecksig BTW, but applies to rpm and
GPG keys in general.  People have posted utilities for doing the key
stripping to bugzilla.fedora.us and elsewhere, maybe we should include
one of those in rpmdevtools.
