Question Where do I get signatures for contrib packages?


When I try to install contrib packages, I get the unknown signature message. Where can I obtain these? I've tried Google with no joy. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Yeah I know I don't need them, but I like to be sure about stuff that I'm installing. If they come with a signature, I want to check them. If they don't, I don't install them.

Most signatures are found at the ftp site of the contibs your downloading. You'll just need to install them.
