Yes, never used neither in the age of Makefile instead of At
some point we used a local copy of pacman.conf in overlay (unmodified
from pacman package when mkarchroot does not support NOCOPY)

Weird. sure?

But think that these files are never used, because:

They are out-of-date (compared to newer pacman.conf) -> There are no
"SigLevel" -> Default "SigLevel" is used, that is "Optional TrustedOnly"
by pacman-4 -> without manual interaction pacman will not work. -> no ISOs.

But we have ISOs all times :) Or I am missing something?
