Why not sign packages you roll? It really isn't that hard. RPM does have
issues with large keys, though - Key on the top1000 list aren't usable
:) - I think 64kb is the maximum size.

And: Setting gpgcheck to 0 in yum.conf should disable global gpg
checking, you can turn it on for each repository in the .repo files
under /etc/yum.repos.d/. So the choice of how you shoot yourself in the
foot with unsigned packages is up to you >:)
