This package tracks the latest stable release. But your suggestion makes sense, so I created:

Be aware that nightlies are not signed by the developer.

Maybe want to update this to use the more up to date version here: instead of the release from 12/2021. It is much more up to date. I built the git version and it does work.

This is what is shown when updating youtube-dl:

The PGP key ED7F5BF46B3BBED81C87368E2C393E0F18A9236D is needed to verify youtube-dl source files.
Trust Sergey M. <> and import the PGP key ? [y/N]

It's the key of Sergey M.

It matches the one found in

Also matches what is found in OpenGPG keyservers:

@ gpg --search-keys ED7F5BF46B3BBED81C87368E2C393E0F18A9236D
gpg: data source:
(1) Sergey M. <>
      4096 bit RSA key 2C393E0F18A9236D, created: 2016-04-09
Keys 1-1 of 1 for "ED7F5BF46B3BBED81C87368E2C393E0F18A9236D".  Enter number(s), N)ext, or Q)uit > Q

And it matches the issuer of signatures found in So it seems legit.

The signature is the same, and source code hasn't changed since 2021. The package was updated because of the recent release of Python 3.12.

Look into commit history, all changes are publicly visible.

With the latest update to this aur, does it come with a new pgp signature? there was some sort of added while processing youtube-dl. the yay window closed after 60 seconds and this email/pgp prompt for import was unfortunately not logged into /var/log/pacman.log

Re-tested the package under a temporary unix user with both yay and pure makepkg. It works fine. Could you try rebuilding after wiping the paru caches?

package fails to install with following output:

mv: cannot stat '/home/xxxx/.cache/paru/clone/youtube-dl/pkg/youtube-dl/usr/share/bash-completion/completions/youtube-dl.bash-completion': No such file or directory

you can import the attached key inside the package before running makepkg:

gpg --import ./keys/pgp/ED7F5BF46B3BBED81C87368E2C393E0F18A9236D.asc
makepkg -si
