Fact checkin what? I didn't respond to a specific case, I responded to a
general statement:

"I usually don't use pgp on my aur packages because people tend to
complain a lot about building issues."

And that statement applies to parts of your comment as well... no I
frankly don't understand that someone would not like to because its
stress. We then better add base-devel to makedepends as well, right?
