We would like to inform you that the migration of the "[obcommunity]" repository has been completed. This involves some significant changes that we'd like to share with you.

New Documentation Available

For those of you using the template for package creation, please note that comprehensive documentation is now available at this link. This resource will guide you through the process of creating and updating packages for "[obcommunity]."

Possible Synchronization Issues

Due to changes in the repository's format, some of you may experience synchronization issues with the "[obcommunity]" database. If you encounter errors similar to these while using Pacman:

error: [obcommunity]: signature from "GPG_SIGN_KEY ([obcommunity] key to sign package through git builder) <pkg@obarun.org>" is invalid
error: failed retrieving file '[obcommunity].db.sig' from cloud.server.obarun.org: The requested URL returned error: 404
error: failed to synchronize all databases (failed to retrieve some files)

We have a straightforward solution. To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

Delete the following files from your system:

rm -f /var/lib/pacman/sync/[obcommunity].{db.sig,files.sig}

Do not forget to change the "SigLevel" field of the [obcommunity] section at your /etc/pacman.conf as follow

SigLevel = DatabaseOptional

Next, perform a new synchronization of the databases. You should find that the issue has been resolved.
