When you do a yum distro-sync according to the instructions on the wiki,
you are supposed to manually import the GPG key for the next release. If
you're doing things Properly, you should somehow verify you're importing
the correct key and not just blindly typing what a wiki page tells you
to, but of course what most people do is blindly type what the wiki page
tells them to...
anyhow, the tricky thing here lies in somehow making it safe for fedup
to *automatically* import the correct key for the next release. This is
a subtlish problem.
