I'm not sure how that solves the net install use case, especially if
mirrormanager is going to redirect to os.newkey/, as signatures used on
os.newkey/ packages will not meet what the installer expects the
signature to be on these files.
You misunderstand the New Key plan. Mirrormanager for the existing
repos fedora, updates and updates-testing will not redirect to the new
location. Please read the plan again carefully.
