look at:

all gpg-keys from packman-team are available on the most (all) key-servers. So 
you can check those keys easy. All our keys are provided in a packman-key 
package. If you have installed those keys, your package-manager checks every 
package against the known keys. But make sure this feature is activates.

you can check my key here:
there are also other public-key-servers with such features.
