It looks like spot generated a new mono.snk. I was arguing to use
Debian's mono.snk, for cross-distro compatibility. Shouldn't everyone
should use Debian's key unless a package provides its own?
Ideally we (Fedora and Debian) should use a single key generated by
upstream but as this issue is only problematic due to cyclic dep
problems in the build process I think that using our own is enough.
Unfortunately I don't care enough to chase this issue further.
