Description Chip Turner 2002-02-19 13:38:37 EST
In order to use gpg for keyring management of the up2date keyring, it is
necessary to have certain parameters on the gpg command line that only up2date
knows (such as location of gpg keyring).

Ideally, one could type:

gpg `up2date --gpg-flags` --list-keys
gpg `up2date --gpg-flags` --import < /foo/my/key.gpg


and be able to use gpg's normal keyring management.  In most cases, up2date
--gpg-flags would expand to:

--no-default-keyring --keyring /etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-keyring.gpg

etc etc.

added in cvs

I'm not real sure I like this change. It's seems kind of "special-casey",
but what the heck.
