The validity of the package isn't impacted because the archive was signed prior to the key expiring.

If there's a new release signed with the current key, that becomes an issue. Considering how stable the software is, I don't think that'll be happening anytime soon.

Everything you need to know is on the wiki.

It is non trivial because not everyone, me for example, knows about that stuff. I spent an evening with google etc without any luck. Even now with what you wrote, I STILL cant get it to install. Expect more noobs like me to bother you in the future, so it just seems like the better option to make it install as expected.

Any further assistance in installing this would be appreciated.

What part of makepkg --skippgpcheck is non trivial?

Read the pinned comment.

Could this package please be re-uploaded with a functional key, as installing it is non trivial.

The binary usr/bin/libiconv has an insecure RPATH. That should probably be fixed by deleting it with chrpath -d.

@grawlinson

I also had some trouble with the key, possibly due to the key being out of date. This worked for me ...

gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 68D94D8AAEEAD48AE7DC5B904F494A942E4616C2

Out of curiosity, where did you get the key from? I seem to be unable to import/receive the signing key on my new computer.

The signing key has expired.

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
    libiconv-1.16.tar.gz ... Passed (WARNING: the key has expired.)
==> WARNING: Warnings have occurred while verifying the signatures.
    Please make sure you really trust them.

Not much you can do about it, I suppose.

The source tarball is signed so in order to verify, you’ll need to import the key into your personal key ring.

gpg --recv-keys $KEY
