Note that apt itself doesn't understand about signed *packages*, that's
achieved with scripts (lua in Fedora's apt, others can be used as well).
Apt does however have notion of signed *repositories*, meaning the
package lists can be GPG-signed and verified from the release file in
the repo against GPG-fingerprints found in /etc/apt/vendors.list.

Well I meant the GPG-KEY that the packages were signed with for the
purposes on not having up2date complain about them not having a "valid"
(as in the local keyring has a copy) key so you don't have to click
"yes" to continue all the time. Apt doesn't really need to know about
the GPG key at all, (but it would be nice)
