Could some key developers sign /developers and /trustedusers or create something like ''debian-keyring'' package? That would allow a transition from implicit trust to [core]+[extra] to gpg-based trust model.
Currently there is no way to verify if /developers and /trustedusers are correct, and to build a trusted initial keyring...

I've tried to make this page more accessible for people who are setting up package signing.  If anyone who is super-familiar with pacman-key could double-check the facts, I'd appreciate it.  --[[User:DJPohly|DJPohly]] 18:08, 18 January 2012 (EST)
I'm not sure where it belongs (I'm new to Arch and the wiki), but I had trouble with I guess it's signing the trusted keys. It wasn't until I found this post: https://pierre-schmitz.com/verify-all-the-packages/ where it mentions <nowiki>pacman-key --populate archlinux</nowiki>. After running that command then I could update my packages.--[[User:Waynew|Waynew]] ([[User talk:Waynew|talk]]) 12:40, 19 May 2012 (UTC)

Custom Built Pacakges Using ABS

Can someone add info on how to sign AND trust custom built packages, e.g. a package I've built using ABS? --sjnims 06:05, 12 April 2012 (EST)

Note: This should actually be placed in Package signing instead of current useless redirect to outdated developers' article
  1. Create personal key with gnupg (it will be located in user's default keychain independantly from stuff in pacman's /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/):
    gpg --gen-key
  2. Import generated key into pacman's keychain (pacman-key --import) from your ~/.gnupg.
  3. Add your signing key to trusted ones, like you did with developers' keys (again {Ic|pacman-key}}).
  4. Optional: configure gpg-agent and other such stuff (see ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf).
For exact instructions and explanations see man pacman-key, man gpg and GnuPG.
