[arch-general] AUR and missing/unidentifiable GPG keys

Hey hey,
it has happened a couple of times now, that AUR packages' GPG keys can't be 
verified using aurget. Here's one example from installing the Linux realtime 
aurget -Sy linux-rt-bfq
[copious output]
patch-4.14.3-rt5.patch ... FAILED (unknown public key 4FE5E3262872E4CC)
ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

aurget is up to date, as pulled from the Github repo.

I know this can be circumvented by editing the pkgbuild file and removing the 
verification option, but that feels wrong. Is there a systematic way to update 
the relevant keys?

As for other packages that did - or still do - suffer from this issue, there's 
certainly wine.

Best wishes and TIA,
