Description of problem:
In section 18.104.22.168. we should also explain how importing of gpg keys
works with newer versions of rpm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
new method not described
addition of the explanation from the RHL 8.0 release notes or a more
This one's likely going to require a little investigation, but it
makes sense to me. Accepting, aligning to the next (3.3.0) release,
marking customer facing, and blocking the 330 doc tracking bug.
OK, this was a little more complicated than I imagined as we no longer
support RHL 8.0 (or any RHL for that matter) and it wasn't immediately
clear whether the versions of RPM that shipped with RHEL support this
new method of import.
I feel confident I determined the required version of RPM (4.1)
shipped only with RHEL 3. This means RHEL 2.1 users still require the
older GPG steps. I believe the instructions now accommodate both sets
of users. While I was in there, I noted the example RH GPG key was
outdated. It's now up-to-date.
Please check my sainity, Patrick, when this doc gets released and let
me know what you think. Setting to MODIFIED.
Done a long time ago. Closing.
