First off, reply to the list, not directly to me.

Importing the gpg key is normal, not "special treatment". It is noted in the
PKGBUILD, which you're supposed to be reading, and is talked about on the
makepkg wiki page. 

I suspect the maintainer is ignoring the comments because he's tired of dealing
with people who simply don't know what they're doing.
