     First, a huge thank you to everyone for all you do on Packman and
elsewhere.  It all is great.  Today (6/10/2011) I received this
message when my two openSUSE 11.4 x86_64 systems tried refreshing
their Packman repositories:

File 'repomd.xml' from repository 'Packman Repository' is signed with
an unknown key ''. Continue?

I checked the Packman key against this found in a message at

On a side note, here is the relevant data about that key:
* it's a 4096 RSA key
* Key ID: 45A1D0671ABD1AFB
  (shows up as ID "1ABD1AFB" in RPM)
* Key Name: PackMan Project (signing key) <packman at links2linux.de>
* Key Fingerprint: F8875B880D518B6B8C530D1345A1D0671ABD1AFB
* Key Created: Mon Sep 20 20:37:32 2010
* Key Expires: Fri Sep 19 20:37:11 2014

The keys used on my system appear to be identical (same fingerprint
and key ID), but they were created 09/21/2008 and expired on
09/21/2010.  I am not in a rush to have this fixed, but I thought you
would like to know.  Thank you again, and have fun.
