Description Jim Pirzyk 2005-07-25 17:25:55 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/312.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/312

Description of problem:
When trying to import the fedoras-extra key (Key ID 1ac70ce6), rpm --import
stores it with the wrong KeyID.  This is a copy of the key downloaded from
the GPG key servers.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. gpg --recv-keys --keyserver hkp://subkeys.pgp.net 1ac70ce6
2. gpg --export --armour 1ac70ce6 > 1ac70ce6.asc
3. rpm --import 1ac70ce6.asc

Actual Results:  rpm -q gpg-pubkey  show this key now installed


Expected Results:  It shoudl have been this key:


Additional info:

They key 7ad14380 is actually someone who signed the fedoras-extra key, thereby trusting it.
The rpm did not understand the difference between signing a key and the key itself.

It is known that rpm cannot deal with importing keys that are signed
See for example :

Reopening this bug because I cannot reopen the other ticket, which I do not own.  This has not been 
fixed so it should not be closed.  Closing it ignores the problem is not being addressed.
Comment 3 Jeff Johnson 2005-10-25 19:33:51 EDT
This problem is fixed (by computing the fingerprint id correctly for signed pubkeys) in rpm-4.4.2
and later
