[csw-users] New gpg key delivery mechanism

Hi All,

I just pushed a new package called CSWcswpki that can deliver the
public keys used by OpenCSW for catalog signing.  If you install this
package and then run cswpki --import, you will get a private gpg
keyring in /var/opt/csw/pki/ that pkgutil is able to use.  You may
need to unset gpg_homedir in pkgutil.conf (or set it explicitly to
/var/opt/csw/pki) for this work.

You can also set pki_auto=yes in your /etc/opt/csw/csw.conf to see the
import action happen automatically at package install time isntead of
requiring you to run any commands manually.

Please let me know if you have any issues with this.  It's a rough
approximation of some of the functionality found in dpkg or rpm and
there is lots of room for improvement still.  Suggestions (and
patches) welcomed.
