You're not helping your case. The pgp issue has well been covered, so I'll skip
that for now.

For msg2, the response that you know you're not supposed to use it but decided
to anyway doesn't inspire confidence. printf or echo would have done the job
just as well, but you used something you knew you weren't supposed to?

To clarify, as I originally said, your PKGBUILDs that I spot checked are
generally good and I think you could make a good TU. You seem to be willing to
work with people, and that's a good sign. There's just some things that make me
wonder if now is the time.
