SIGNED PACKAGES
2013-12-06

Hey there.

For security reasons we've started to sign our packages using GPG, like arch already does for their repos.
You can get the needed public keys by installing the "bbqlinux-keyring" package from our repos.

To make pacman only trusting signed packages the required change to your pacman config would look like this Patch.
(remove "SigLevel = Optional TrustAll" from the bbqlinux repo entry)
