Output of pacman during archlinux-keyring installation/update increases 5-fold in log and approximately 10-fold in console. Number of developers can potentionally increase over time, making this worse.

Steps to reproduce:
pacman -S archlinux-keyring

Possible solution:
Modify archlinux-keyring/pacman-key to limit output to total number of imported/updated keys and instead of listing every developer's status and reformat/reduce "Locally signing" messages verbosity.
This task depends upon

Additionally it doesnt make sense logging the output of pacman-key --populate archlinux to pacman.conf.

This can only be fixed in pacman-keyring (part of the pacman package)
