The "community" import seems to have gone well, but there were a few
problems with the "archlinux32" import.

db-update complaining:

     ==> ERROR: Package community/haskell-gnuidn-0.2.2-66.0-i686.pkg.tar.xz does not have a valid signature

So, I tried.

    $ sudo pacman -U /srv/repo/main/core/os/i686/archlinux32-keyring-20180603-1.0-any.pkg.tar.xz

But that hung, so I:

    $ sudo killall gpg-agent dirmngr
    $ sudo rm -rf /etc/pacman.d/gnupg /etc/pacman.d/gnupg~
    $ sudo pacman-key --init
    $ sudo pacman-key --populate
    $ sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys
    $ sudo pacman -U /srv/repo/main/core/os/i686/archlinux32-keyring-20180603-1.0-any.pkg.tar.xz

    $ sudo rm -rf /etc/pacman.d/gnupg
    $ sudo pacman-key --init
    $ sudo pacman-key --populate
    $ sudo pacman-key --refresh-keys

So, we need an automated way for archlinux32-keyring to get to other

That issue resolved for the moment, db-update is now complaining:

     ==> ERROR: Package testing/acl-2.2.53-1.1-i686.pkg.tar.xz does not have a valid packager

acl 2.2.53-1.1 and several other packages have `packager = Unknown
Packager`, which db-update won't allow.  I'v reported this in
#archlinux32, and am collecting more information on it to file a
detailed bug report with them.

Happy hacking,
