I know i make myself very unpopulary with this...

Anything new which could be tested?

As far as i see we have a very good start shortly after the discussion
about "signing". Now a stagnation. I'm aware that the pacman developers
are also short in time. Should maybe the git head from Dan's repo
(newgpg) posted on arch public-devel or arch-general so that C
programmer could have look?

Or what is with the idea to start first with package database signing?
If package signing is hard to implement maybe we shouldn't make the
second step before the first.
