You're making quite a leap, here. I was responding to your statement
that you are, in fact, using the test releases on what you consider a
critical system. I think you'll find copious references to explicit
warnings against this practice both on the Fedora website and from
several posts to this and other Red Hat lists. You've chosen to ignore
That said, perhaps Red Hat does need to do a better job of making sure
all packages are signed, but so far no one has come up with a workable,
*secure* way of doing that in a timely enough fashion to keep up with
the pace of testing.
