Don't know what that's all about,

Rawhide has switched to using SHA256 instead of MD5 everywhere including
RPM. Details in the stronger hashes feature at


Actually it seems to be signed with a key I don't see, the message is:
kernel-2.6.29-0.258.rc8.git2.fc11.src.rpm: RSA sha1 (MD5) (PGP) md5 NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: PGP#d22e77f2)

I assume it's a key only in the FC11 release, which isn't in older systems. A problem for another day, I'm content now that I understand why it fails.
