Thanks for answering this... I used to have a script doing something
I guess this will help Allen.

Thanks for link. I had not come across this thread.
It would appear that currently there isn't any method to sign RPMs
within koji or mash. You can import prebuilt RPMs with signatures
into Koji. I don't know much about importing RPMs into koji because
I haven't had a need.
Do the Fedora guys use the sign_unsigned.py script for the official
Fedora yum repos? If so, how do they use mash? Because it looks to
me that if you use this script, it does one of the steps mash does;
fetching RPMs out of koji tags.
I would have guessed that the Fedora guys generate their yum repos
via mash from koji tags and then sign RPMs.
I'd have to modify this script to suit my needs, but I think I could
do it. It also looks like it relies on a newer version of RPM, the
rpm command for key size == 4096 is one spot I noticed.
Also, I have to enter a passphrase when I sign my RPMs but this
script doesn't have any provisions for that. Is there a way to make
rpm --resign not prompt for a passphrase?
Has there been any talk about adding RPM signing to mash? It seems
like that'd be a good place for it.
