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

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Releases/11/FeatureList

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.

Yes. Every release has a different key.

Interesting, though, I got that key off the web site for the alpha, and it's in my personal keyring, some time when I want to spend a lot of time on something I probably won't use I'll figure out where that key needs to be, since I don't have a usable FC11 machine (both installed the alpha but when I do the upgrade they hang solid).

Not critical, the newer kernel seems to use my display no better than the old.
