Looks good here, but can you add "gnupg" somewhere in the initial sentence? When many packages have messages that are all output together at the end of a pkg run, it can sometimes be hard to tell what message applies to what package. Maybe "gnupg may experience random connection failures"?

Thanks for this!

Update pkg-message so that it is clear the message is about GnuPG (security/gnupg).
