First try:

Signed Packages

You are installing software packages which include a cryptographic
signature.  This signature is intended to ensure that software installed
on your system is from a trusted source, and has not been tampered with.
Before this software can be installed, you must indicate that you trust
the source of the packages.  The following information is provided by
the repository you are installing software from.  If you trust the
software provided by the person or organization below, you can import
the key described below.  This key will be used to verify that packages
installed from this repository were signed by the person matching the
key, and have not been tampered with.  You can also disable signature
checking by ...

{{signature information}}

Blah.  Too wordy, but I tried to include the important details while
still being generic and not too technical.  The last sentance assumes we
have support for disable checking at some point.
