I've opened an issue and created a pull request, as I made some
experiments with perl in order to have the script working; the issue
(now closed) is here:
Now, pacman recognises the key and accepts the package, but it still
complains a little, saying that the signature format is unsupported:
--- Terminal output starts here
$ LANG=C sudo pacman -Sy dpkg
:: Synchronizing package databases...

Why does pacman give that error?
As it marks it as an error, but it install the package anyways...!
