Before running makepkg, you must do this:

gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D1483FA6C3C07136

See below for details.

The github download links are consistently out-of-date. 7.0.4 has been out for weeks and is still not on github. If you can get them to update reliably, I'll use it.

@admicos: Have you tried using "torify makepkg"?

Can you change the sources to download from GitHub? is blocked in Turkey and manually editing the PKGBUILD is just too time consuming (for me, at least)

Improvement Suggestion: Make use of the XDG Base Directories.

Make it unpack to "${XDG_DATA_HOME}/tor-browser-en" instead of "~/.tor-browser-en". (if "${XDG_DATA_HOME}" is not set, it should default to "~/.local/share")
Maybe you could even use "${XDG_CACHE_HOME}" (default to "~/.cache") instead of "${XDG_DATA_HOME}" since deleting the directory is no problem; it is created if it doesn't exist.

PS. Maybe you could even group the data for the tor-browser packages by moving the language to a sub-directory; "tor-browser/${LANG}" as opposed to "tor-browser-${LANG}".

I think you should update the "Icon" section in the .desktop file. Since you're pointing to an absolute path, people who use a custom icon theme won't get the proper icon. Changing it to: Icon=REPL_NAME should be enough.

As mentioned the gpg errors are an issue with default versions of gnupg in most linux distros, specifically a dns resolution issue. If you cannot be bothered downgrading your gnupg package then just ping the keyserver and use it's ip instead of its url.

yar: for beginners I with to add that the gpg command must be run as the same user compiling the package, not as root.
