I think trusting GitHub's key would be no better than fetching the GitHub source with HTTPS.

So I added just the main key — thanks.

with the validpgpkeys part yes (it constrains which keys are allowed to validate the commits)

However Github sign the merges done on with :

pub   rsa2048 2017-08-16 [SC]
uid           [ unknown] GitHub (web-flow commit signing) <>

So adding your key and this one to validpgpkeys should to the trick.

Sometimes there are also commits from other people. Merging on GitHub won't sign them with the needed key. Would makepkg abort in such case?

I noticed that you sign your commits. So could you maybe use

validpgpkeys=('96F281C741F4F2693E96885BF6532C30466E8B3E') # not required

in the PKGBUILD ?

There is no official release version, but usually git packages should conflict and provide the base form, so that they are interchangeable with stable release packages in the future.

Configuration changes in version 0.r98.be9c5ea:

  • The INITRD variable no longer accepts multiple initramfs files. Use the new CONFIGS variable instead.

Configuration changes in version 0.r84.aa95459:

  • Config file renamed to /etc/sbupdate.conf
  • Default key directory changed to /etc/efi-keys
  • KEYFILE and CRTFILE options are removed. The script now handles lowercase and uppercase variants automatically.

That is awesome, thank you. It worked with the new options

@wincraft71 Should work now, see new configuration options.
