Should I trust such developer?

The PGP key C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB is needed to verify ncurses5-compat-libs source files.
Trust Thomas Dickey <> and import the PGP key ? [y/N]

And why there is no option "I don't know" [y/N/D] ? :slight_smile:

If he's over 30, I wouldn't. :wink:


He's been around a while, seems pretty trustworthy to me. YMMV.

An "I don't know" option would be analogous to "No" in this case. The software can't make a decision for you.


Why should you trust another random stranger on the Internet to vouch for Thomas Dickey? :wink:

Having said that, he is trusted by me and has a ton of software he maintains

And to answer your second question: If you don't know if you should trust someone, the answer is "No": The Botnet Maffia can always use another PC in their empire... and you should just do without ncurses.

:innocent: :smirk: :innocent:
