bad boolean config value 'null' for 'commit.gpgsign'

Hi.

when installing different packages (for instance 'laverna') through yay, I'm getting the same error message:

error merging laverna: fatal: bad boolean config value 'null' for 'commit.gpgsign'

full log: https://pastebin.com/hMgRu3V4

Is there something I'm missing? BTW: system is up-to-date
Thanks

Re: bad boolean config value 'null' for 'commit.gpgsign'

Can you reproduce the issue using makepkg?

No, I could not. My first intention was to install joplin-desktop. I was able to install it and run the app without any issue

Re: bad boolean config value 'null' for 'commit.gpgsign'

wild guess: check if you have a bad setting in your global git config and or in the package's git repo in `~/.cache/yay` (or whereve yay stores its cache). `commit.gpgSign` is a git setting (see this section https://man.archlinux.org/man/git-config.1#Variables)

Re: bad boolean config value 'null' for 'commit.gpgsign'

yes, it was actually an issue created by gitblad adding invalid config to git. I removed the faulty config and now I'm able to run yay without issues. Thank you!
