(fixed, by the way)

i'm the author (r00t^2). :P

but yeah, forgot to update the SHA512 for the 3.01 release, whoops. gpg check should have still passed, though- usually if a sig distributed with a PKGBUILD passes but the checksum fails, that just means the hash wasn't updated but it's still a valid file. (and my key is indeed listed in the bdisk.square-r00t.net docs, as well as that post i linked to.)

i linked to that post because people don't know how to use gpg verification with makepkg and think the verification's failing but it's actually because they haven't imported my key.

yes, I know how to override a failed checksum, but its a security error, and I do not ignore those, especially if someone chooses a strong hash like SHA512, they value security.

I posted the error hoping you'd re-check the file, and determine if BDisk-3.01.tar.xz is still authentic

Before I install, I would like a concise update/answer from the program maintainer. Security violations are not glitches to be ignored. If the hash is wrong, please change it. If the hash is right, please let me know because of a potential MITM attack.
