Running "pacman -Syu" will lead to the following error:
:: Import PGP key 4096R/B81B051F2D7FC867AAFF35A58DBD63B82"Seblu <>", created: 2011-11-11? [Y/n]

Now, I wonder why should I trust that key.
* There is no mention on the website
* There is no pending update for the keyring or any other pacman related component.

A friend of mine proposed the following work-around:
* sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
* sudo pacman -Syu

Is this the way to go?
If so can you please add it to the website?
This task depends upon
