Meta data in OBS repo-md repositories (i.e., repomd. is usually

As an example:
has a key that expired at April 1, 2010; i.e., 12 days ago. (The
key has ID 0xBD6D129A and fingerprint EDDD C98D 96A0 F889 9AB0 7C78
9584 A164 BD6D 129A.)

I would have expected a warning or an error when this repository is
refreshed, but nothing as such happens.

Same as with rpm ;-)

Good point; but actually I find check of repository meta-data
signatures even more important than rpm signatures. RPMs may be
validly older, since the software may have not changed for a long
time -- I do not expect that to happen for repository meta-data.
