That's what happens to all the good ideas. :) I do the same thing all
the time.

I got it.

I did it this way:
if not self.gpgKeyCheck(): # if we don't have any gpg keys in the rpmdb
    for repo in self.repos.listEnabled(): 
        if repo.gpgcheck and repo.gpgkey == '': # if a repo is set to   
                                                # check and no gpgkey

since the gpgcheck globally is only used as default setting for the
repositories' gpgcheck value it seemed to make sense to do it this way.

and I updated the warning message, too:

You have enabled checking of packages via GPG keys. 
This is a good thing. However, you do not have any GPG public keys
installed. You need to download the keys for packages you wish to
install and install them. You can do that by running the command:
    rpm --import public.gpg.key

Alternatively you can specify the url to the key you would like to use
for a repository in the 'gpgkey' option in a repository section and yum 
will install it for you.

For more information contact your distribution or package provider.

work for you?
