EU mirror is offline due to server issues, use the US mirror instead (it is commented out in the PKGBUILD).

Hi, writing a comment related to "unknown public key" is a funny faux pas. Another subscriber already provided the solution. However, at least palemoon-gtk3-bin ( ) is provided by . Regards, Ralf

Please note that the 30.0.x release has been pulled while upstream deal with the fallout of the actions a disgruntled contributor. While there is nothing suggesting the 30.0.x releases are compromised in any way, the lead dev is understandably too busy performing damage control to support the 30.0.x release and is recommending people stick to 29.4.4 for the time being.

Importing Moonchild's key (8FCF9CEC) doesn't solve the problem, just the old key from Travis ( but afaik we can trust this key.

Assuming the fingerprint is correct, verified by a web of trust, a signed checksum is used, to grant a sources used by a PKGBUILD is unmodified. This for example ensure that nobody hacked the download page and replaced the source by a modified malicious source. You always only have the word of the person providing the source with the signed checksum for download, but at least nobody else can do something harmful. You better don't skip the validation. While fingerprints and the web of trust are sensitive topics, still consider to use checksums.
