Yaourt is not abandonned, and he did say "and the like", which includes
Bauerbill, Pakthan... Bauerbill already implements a way to trust users
but the names of the users that can be trusted have to be configured

I used to dislike those wrappers very strongly when they didn't allow
their user to verify PKGBUILDs. Now they all do, and that's their
default behavior. I still don't use them because they wouldn't save me
much time, the most time-consuming part of the installation of AUR
packages being to check the PKGBUILDs. I might switch to bauerbill
though, because although what it does is not enough, at least it allows
me to trust selected users.
