[arch-general] archlinux-keyring & entropy

I'm not sure if [1] is the official announcement, but I'd like to
point out that

# pacman-key --init
gpg: /etc/pacman.d/gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Generating pacman keychain master key...

seems to hang forever unless you run 'updtedb' or something so the
entropy problem should be covered, as suggested in [2].
[2] mentions "SigLevel = Required" while [1] tells you to set
"SigLevel = PackageRequired" - I assume because the databases are not
signed yet.
