[CentOS-devel] Some way to validate SIG repo repodata (via HTTPS or GPG-signed repomd?)

Hey,

I've been trying to get the CentOS SIG repositories enabled in the
openSUSE Build Service[1].

Today, I started working with Adrian Schröter (who is CC'd to this
email) on getting this done, and the issue right now is that there's
no way to securely validate the repodata.

OBS supports two ways:

1. Validating repodata from a mirror using the copy on the master
server fetched through HTTPS.

2. Validating repodata through GPG-signed repodata (signed repomd.xml)

While the base repositories do the latter, none of the repositories
produced through CBS do, and _nothing_ currently does the former.

Is there something that can be done to make this better so we can have
nice things?

Best regards,
Neal
