Description
-----------
-'pacman-key' is a script used to manage pacman's keyring, which is the collection

-and export keys, fetch keys from keyservers and update the key trust database.
+'pacman-key' is a wrapper script for GnuPG used to manage pacman's keyring, which

+More complex keyring management can be achieved using GnuPG directly combined with
+the `--homedir` option pointing at the pacman keyring (located in
++{sysconfdir}/pacman.d/gnupg+ by default).

-Options
--------
-*--config* <file>::
- Use an alternate config file instead of the +{sysconfdir}/pacman.conf+

-*--gpgdir* <dir>::
- Set an alternate home directory for GnuPG. If unspecified, the value is

-
-
-Commands
+Options
-------
-*-a, --add* file ...::
+*-a, --add* [file(s)]::
Add the key(s) contained in the specified file or files to pacman's
keyring. If a key already exists, update it.

-*--adv* param ...::
- Use this option to issue particular GnuPG actions to pacman's keyring. This
- option should be used with care as it can modify pacman's trust in
- packages' signatures.
+*--config* <file>::
+ Use an alternate config file instead of the +{sysconfdir}/pacman.conf+
+ default.

-*-d, --del* keyid ...::
- Remove the key(s) identified by the specified keyid or keyids from pacman's
+*-d, --del* <keyid(s)>::
+ Remove the key(s) identified by the specified keyid(s) from pacman's
keyring.

-*-e, --export* [keyid ...]::
- Export key(s) identified by the specified keyid to 'stdout'. If no keyid is
- specified, all keys will be exported.
+*-e, --export* [keyid(s)]::
+ Export key(s) identified by the specified keyid(s) to 'stdout'. If no keyid
+ is specified, all keys will be exported.

-*-f, --finger* [keyid ...]::
+*--edit-key * <keyid(s)>::
+ Set the trust level of the given key.
+
+*-f, --finger* [keyid(s)]::
List a fingerprint for each specified keyid, or for all known keys if no
keyids are specified.

+*--gpgdir* <dir>::
