[pacman-dev] [PATCH 1/2] pacman-key: verify TRUST_ULTIMATE keys as good

Extend our grep pattern to match TRUST_ULTIMATE, not just TRUST_FULLY,
as these keys are to be trusted as well.

Signed-off-by: Dave Reisner <dreisner at archlinux.org>
pacman-key would exit with an error here, but still show the success
message from gpg itself, e.g. if my key is TRUST_ULTIMATE:

$ pacman-key --verify curl-7.25.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.sig
gpg: Signature made Thu 22 Mar 2012 07:51:44 PM EDT using RSA key ID F56C0C53
gpg: NOTE: trustdb not writable
gpg: Good signature from "Dave Reisner <d at falconindy.com>"
gpg:                 aka "Dave Reisner <dreisner at archlinux.org>"
==> ERROR: The signature identified by curl-7.25.0-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz.sig could not be verified.
