up2date appears to be ignoring GPG signatures which it can't understand.
When downloading packages which are unsiqned it warns. However, when
downloading packages signed with a signature it doesn't recognize (such as the
beta RPMs signed with the beta key), it downloads and installs them without
generating any warnings.
The beta gpg key should be on the new default keyring
(/etc/sysconfig/rhn/up2date-keyring.gpg), so the key
It doesn't appear to be, at least judging by the failed checks seen from rpm
--checksig against the new packages
rpm doesnt use the up2date keyring by default, so you will
need to add the key to roots keyring (or whatever keyring
you use to validate rpms with).
try `gpg --import /usr/share/rhn/BETA-RPM-GPG-KEY`
and then verifing the package...
Ah, I was thinking rpm would already have the keys. I'll close this then, since
everything works as it should after I add the keys to the user running rpm.
