UMD to sign packages

So far UMD did not sign RPMs or DEB produced by the product teams, relying on the check of the EMI or EPEL gpg keys. To be able to get new middleware updates as soon as the product teams release, UMD team is considering to sign the RPMs that can be imported also from repositories or web locations.
