Default pacman-key status


With the patches towards pacman-key now on my working branch ([1] - 16
patches in total!), I have completed everything that I had on my TODO
list for pacman-key.

This should also cover all patches submitted to the mailing list except
the --import{,-trustdb} ones by Pang Yan Han (see below). Please let me
know if anything submitted here has been omitted.

For the --import{,-trustdb} patches, I am not entirely sure of the
status... It would appear that the original patch [2] was reviewd by
Dan [3] and a revision submitted [4]. The revised patch looks fine and
I am happy to get it applying on top of my current work but is has this
comment in it:

> NOTE: There is this very strange bug such that when new keys are added,
> previously imported keys will fail for signature verification. This
happens with

> both --add and --import.
> Eg. Say you want to import trustdb.gpg and pubring.gpg from
directories "first",

> "second" and "third", you'd have to:
> # pacman-key --import first second third
> # pacman-key --import first second third

However, I am not seeing this behavior with --add, so I am unsure
whether it is just this --import patch that is an issue. So that patch
is somewhat in limbo at the moment. I will follow this up in reply to
the patch.
