This PKGBUILD verifies the authenticity of the source via PGP signatures which are not part of the Arch Linux keyring. In order to complete the process it is necessary to import the key(s) from the ‘validpgpkeys’ array into the user’s keyring before calling makepkg. There is a helpful article explaining this process by one of Arch Linux's developers located here: http://allanmcrae.com/2015/01/two-pgp-keyrings-for-package-management-in-arch-linux/

Instructions on importing keys from a keyserver and how to automate the retrieval process can be found in the Arch Linux wiki here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/GnuPG#Use_a_keyserver This article also contains helpful information describing the installation of GnuPG, its configuration and usage.

Execute the following to import keys using gpg:

gpg --recv-keys <KEYID - See 'validpgpkeys' array in PKGBUILD>

The PGP signature check can be skipped by passing --skippgpcheck to makepkg.

Consult the makepkg manual page for a full list of options. [https://www.archlinux.org/pacman/makepkg.8.html]

OK, so the maintainer believes it's OK. Gotcha.

I don't understand. The PGP signatures are expired, but this hasn't been updated. So, we are just supposed to skip the pgp check? I did that using "export MAKEPKG="makepkg --skipinteg"". But, is that really OK?

Please, can you reupload this package? I can not open the lib32-libmng.tar.gz file.

slackman: Unfortunately SourceForge can be a tad unreliable. This is; however, where the project is hosted and where the package in [Extra] also fetches the source from. At present one encounters no issues when fetching the source and signature from SourceForge.

The http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/libmng/libmng-2.0.3.tar.xz file doesn't work anymore! I had to copy it manually from the link bottom.

lightdot: With a whole lot of luck this won't need updating till the next release from upstream. Should a re-release be necessary I'll be sure to bump the pkgrel back up so no user is left behind.

A reasonable move, IMHO. But please jump from 2.0.3-1 to 2.0.3-4 should a release in the 2.0.3 line be needed in the future.

Thanks for picking up the package, btw.

quellen: Please use your eyes before flagging packages out of date unnecessarily. There is a pinned post warning you about extra preparation necessary to verify the source via a PGP signature. There is also a URL directing you to a signed binary package in the Arch Linux Archive is figuring out how to build this is too hard.

As there have been no changes relevant to the output generated by this PKGBUILD I have rolled the package release back to the same one given to the last release before this was dropped from [Multilib] to prevent more unnecessary updates and rebuilds. There is presently a signed binary package for this in the Arch Linux Archive here: https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/l/lib32-libmng/
