I do know some projects which sign their packages buy Arch PKGBUILDs do not
use them. Package 'postfix' is an example. Do the developers want bug reports
about that?
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Chris           get my mail address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*               gcc -o sig sig.c && ./sig    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
