Perhaps but people should also realize that sometimes a organization is 
limited in what it can say. In part, as announced this is a ongoing 
investigation.

Fedora has send half a dozen announcements already as I pointed out.

Red Hat has send a errata as well.

The accusations are being thrown out from people with an agenda. The 
details are lost in the noise.

Maybe you are not seeing this but there is a link to

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Enabling_new_signing_key

Other details are covered within the announcements send to the list. 
Note that you don't have to do *anything* at all for the new signing key 
as yum will automatically prompt you and switch you over and you will 
automatically start getting packages signed with this key. So end users 
are not required to read the technical information just to get new updates.
