[pacman-dev] repo-add -v

repo-add -v something.db.tar.xz

(no packages to add) works without complaint. But then if I run it again, it says “bad signature”. This is quite befuddling.

Suggestion: disallow the invocation above, on the grounds that -v is not a standalone verify operation (which I originally thought it was) but one that is supposed to verify the db before actually adding something.

Or allow the invocation, and make it a standalone verification operation that does not change the tar file or the signature.

My $0.02
