Thanks both for your quick answers,

I've implemented a solution to avoid the keyring issue by handling 
properly the error, and catch it properly in test-all.R (as a better 
control to deactivate CI integration tests if Zenodo token is invalid - 
which is the case on CRAN).


zen4R has been resubmitted and Fedora CRAN builds are fine now.
