-The opkg package manager supports verifying package feeds. This feature
-requires linking against the [GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME) library][gpgme].
-GPGME and its dependencies are now packaged in ProteanOS, so opkg can be built
-with package feed verification. This feature should be optional. The `opkg`
-source package should have two builds, with and without verification enabled.
-This will probably mean generating new binary packages `opkg-gpg` and
-`libopkg.1-gpg` (which will conflict with `opkg` and `libopkg.1` respectively)
-and installing data files into binary package directories without the aid of
-`oh-installfiles`. Although, option 1 of the [[static_libopkg|pkg/opkg/static]]
-plan would simplify this by getting rid of the `libopkg.1` and `libopkg.1-dev`
-packages altogether. The `opkg` source package could then build just `opkg`,
-`opkg-gpg`, `opkg-dbg`, and `opkg-doc` binary packages.
+The opkg source package now builds opkg-gpg and opkg binary packages with and
+without support for package feed verification using the [GnuPG Made Easy (GPGME)
+library][gpgme] and its dependencies.
