Problem with signatures when installing packages from CD/DVD or USB

I am following the chapter in the Wiki "Installing packages from a CD/DVD or USB stick". That recommends first

pacman -Syw --cachedir . <packages>


repo-add ./custom.db.tar.gz ./*

The problem is that the first command won't download .sig files from the repo, and repo-add won't add %PGPSIG% sections to custom.db if .sig files are missing. The result is that the downloaded packages are effectively not signed, and this means that they cannot be installed if the destination pacman.conf has

SigLevel = PackageRequired

, which is what the same WIki recommends.

Is there a way to download .sig files of packages along with the packages themselves, to avoid the hassle of downloading them manually?
