In cpanp (and I presume in cpan):

CPAN Terminal> s conf signature 0

    Okay, and if a GPG signature is missing ... can someone please document here how one properly retrieves and installs it?   (Does someone, like, have to read that hex key-id and enter it by hand into a separate command to pull the PK down from a keyserver?   How gauche ...   For all those of us who don’t know the answer, what is the answer to this one?)

      If you're using the cli

      gpg --import keyfile

      gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys eyeid

      I'm sure there are ways to autoimport keys, but I don't know how
