Yes, this is a missing feature. If we add some code to copy the
trusted.gpg data into the partitial mirror, then fai-mirror must be
called as root. Currently you should call it as a normal user.
Do you have any patch for me?

You have to copy the trusted.gpg data into the diurectory of the
mirror. Look here:
